The Biennial will present new and specially commissioned works by contemporary artists, filmmakers, writers and performers from across the region and internationally.
Developing on the geographic reach and the focus on new production of previous Biennials, Plot for a Biennial merges what have traditionally been parallel formats of exhibition, film and performance into a multivalent sequence of encounters that extend from the Sharjah Art Museum to Sharjah’s historic Heritage Area and sites around the city.
