Saudi Arabia is a must-see destination. Long closed to tourism, the kingdom has undergone an extraordinary transformation over the last years. Our European imaginations often struggle to picture the gigantic scale of recent projects carried out on the Arabian Peninsula. You have to see these prodigious modern achievements for yourself!
You will be dazzled by the avant-garde nature of Riyadh, one of the richest cities on the planet. The kingdom’s capital is also one of the world’s centres for contemporary art. During the Contemporary Art Biennial, we invite you to discover Riyadh’s art scene through its museums and visits of private studios.
While Saudi Arabia is a land of innovation, the Kingdom has not forgotten its Islamic traditions and thousand-year-old history. You will be struck by the majestic beauty of the landscapes of the AlUla valley, a sublime oasis in the desert. In an exceptional setting, you will visit the Nabataean archaeological sites and the Desert X exhibition, undoubtedly the most spectacular land art event in the world.
For those who want to pursue the adventure, there is the option of continuing their stay in Jeddah, the country’s second city. Located on the west coast, the port city boasts some of the best galleries on the Arabian Peninsula, world-class museums and a vibrant arts scene. In Jeddah, we will have the opportunity to meet some of Saudi Arabia’s most renowned artists in their studios.
A unique experience in every way!
