Co-curated by Desert X Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Saudi curators and contemporary art specialists Raneem Farsi and Aya Alireza, Desert X AlUla is an exhibition that will take place in the landscape of the extraordinary and historically significant desert region of AlUla, northwest Saudi Arabia, which is home to the country’s first UNESCO world heritage site. The exhibition will be on view from January 31–March 7, 2020 as part of AlUla’s annual cultural festival Winter at Tantora.
Desert X AlUla is the first international collaboration for Desert X, which was founded to connect desert communities and cultures through contemporary art. The exhibition will bring together artists from Saudi Arabia and the surrounding region with artists from around the world presenting large-scale installations, including site-specific works and commissions that respond to the landscape and specific conditions of the desert.
Desert X AlUla will create an international dialogue about the desert and shared interests through art works that respond to different desert cultures and environmental conditions, and to the historical context of AlUla.
