>> Extensive Visual Tour

Information and more than 250 photos and videos of art works by 98 participants and of all the venues.

Inspired by the courtyard in Islamic architecture —in particular the historical courtyards of Sharjah, where elements of both public and private life intertwine— SB11 Curator Yuko Hasegawa proposes a new cultural cartography that reconsiders the relationships between the Arab world, Asia, the Far East, through North Africa to Latin America.

 

More than 100 artists, architects, and musicians, were invited to participate in Sharjah Biennial 11 (SB11), with over one third of them creating new commissions.

The opening of SB11 marked the inauguration of SAF's five new multi-functional art spaces in the Sharjah Heritage Area.
