Sharjah Art Foundation, 07.03.–10.06.2019
Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber will explore the possibilities for creating art when material culture is under constant threat of human destruction and climate degradation, offering artists from the UAE and around the world an internationally recognised platform for exhibition and experimentation.
The biennial will include three distinct exhibitions organised by each of the three curators, presenting works by contemporary artists to explore the ways in which contemporary life, enabled by rapid technological change, has created a seemingly inescapable “echo chamber” of information, complex personal networks and shifting narratives that are physical, spiritual and virtual.
