Since its inception in 1993, the Sharjah Biennial has formed a cultural bridge between artists, art institutions and organisations locally, regionally and internationally.
Produced by the Department of Culture and Information in the Emirate of Sharjah, the biennial holds a key regional position in the production and presentation of art and in fostering experimentation.
The Sharjah Biennial’s track record indicates its defining role as one of the few art institutions in the region; it also spearheads a programme of support for artistic productions, access to their presentations and also actively assisting in their dissemination. This support, in light of the current developments in art and the incessant pursuit to define and re-define the role of the now mushrooming biennials all over the world, needs to be sensibly extended to artists operating in the region.
This support plays a vital role in the development and sustainability of a budding yet vibrant art movement. It also needs to reach out to those working in other parts of the world, who do not necessarily need the Biennial’s support, but can positively contribute to the crucial dialogue among artists and practitioners, and the sharing of experiences in the progress of knowledge.
