Mostly Visible Exhibition | عمود نور

Monday February 25 will be the opening of an unprecedented exhibition: “MOSTLY VISIBLE | عمود نور” organized by ATHR GALLERY and curated by artist ASHRAF FAYADH.


“MOSTLY VISIBLE is an introductory event of a new vision for art, a local and genuine expression of real life in Saudi Arabia, derives from the source that culture started to be formed, organized by the leading contemporary Saudi art gallery (Athr Gallery), and Curated by Artist Ashraf Fayadh,”

“We live in one country. The fabric consists of geographically and culturally variable cities; we come from different backgrounds, tell our stories, while trying to achieve the best vision that will enable us to understand our reality […] we use the energy that we derive from our heritage, our culture, our own social and we took with the changes of our times.

Art is seeing things into different vision, note things from the point of view of the artist, comment, criticism, or even sympathizing with them as they are very spontaneous… But sufficient to draw attention, art was more streamlined and practical reality, and still carries a variety of deeper and closer to the culture of the Assembly, closer to the truth as it is, we try to simply make things visible always, in our own way, our language, and our vision for the future.” ASHRAF FAYADH, curator.
