press release

Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) has announced March 13–17, 2013, as the dates for the Sharjah Biennial's opening week programme and the annual March Meeting. A new selection of artists invited to participate in Sharjah Biennial 11 has also been announced, including Francis Alÿs, Tiffany Chung, Runa Islam, Lucia Koch, Nasir Nasrallah, Ernesto Neto, Otobong Nkanga, Gabriel Orozco, and Ayman Ramadan. Sharjah Biennial 11 will take place March 13 through May 13, 2013.

Yesterday during the São Paulo Biennial, at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Sharjah Art Foundation hosted a panel discussion between Sharjah Biennial 11 Curator Yuko Hasegawa, Sharjah Art Foundation President and Director Hoor Al Qasimi, and Brazilian artist Lucia Koch, who has been invited to participate in Sharjah Biennial 11.

In June, Sharjah Art Foundation announced five additional artists who will be creating work for Sharjah Biennial 11: Saadane Afif, Yang Fudong, Studio Mumbai, Kazuyo Sejima, and Wael Shawky.

Sharjah Biennial 11 will feature a large number of new artist commissions, and large-scale projects by a range of international architects who will create temporary public structures in locations across the city. The Biennial will also host collateral performance, film, and public outreach programmes.
