In the previous editions, the Sharjah Art Museum was always the main venue of the Sharjah Biennial. But for SB11 in 2013, the organizers use only a section at the upper floor of the main building.
The Sharjah Art Museum, established in 1995 under the Art Directorate of the Department of Culture & Information, was housed in Bait Al Serkal until 1997. The new building, fully designated to the fine arts and art-related activities, was constructed just a few steps from there, and inaugurated on 9 April 1997 during the 3rd Sharjah Biennial.
The main building and another one behind, interconnected by two passage ways, have 68 halls of various sizes and a total area of aprox. 11,000 square meters.
