Noor Riyadh 2023
REFRACTED IDENTITIES, SHARED FUTURES
Four artists -Aidha Badr, Amna AlBaker, Mashael Alsaie and Talin Hazbar- have been selected for 'Refracted Identities, Shared Futures', the exhibition accompanying the 2023 of Noor Riyadh.
Held at the Riyadh art space in JAX District, this exhibition is curated by Neville Wakefield, formerly of MoMA PS1, Frieze Projects, and Desert X, alongside Maya Al Athel, who served as artistic manager of the festival in 2022.
Last year, the exhibition considered light as a signal of change, tracing the role light plays in shaping our perception of the world. For 2023, the show celebrates light as a flux, where artists as cartographers of light comprehend the dynamic nature of human and cultural identity amidst the shifting sands of time.
