Nadia Kaabi Linke, Sharjah Biennial
Under Standing Over Views, 2009
Installation composed of fallen paint fragments collected from the walls of different cities.
Sharjah is the third largest of the 7 constituent emirates of the United Arab Emirates. It rates as the cultural centre of the Federation. In 1998, Sharjah was UNESCO cultural capital of the Arab World.
Since 1993, the Department of Culture and Information of the Emirate of Sharjah has hosted the international Art Biennial in the city of that same name. The aim is to encourage contacts between artists, and art institutions and organizations of the Arab countries and to promote exchange with art scenes in other parts of the world. This accounts for a high proportion of Arab artists in all previous editions.
The declared goal of the organizers of the 6th Biennial 2003 was to introduce a "new era for contemporary art in the Gulf". You may find further details in our information on the 6th Biennial.
