ATHR is pleased to announce the opening of a new gallery space in AlUla, Saudi Arabia. ATHR Gallery AlUla is located in the ancient desert city’s new arts and culture precinct, AlJadidah, in a dedicated exhibition space of 150m2 inside the AlUla Design Gallery.
The AlUla Design Gallery is the newest art and design project to be unveiled in AlUla this winter and another milestone in reasserting AlUla’s position as a center of creativity and culture, with a mix of local and international art to discover.
The new 500m2 building is a contemporary space made of corten steel, glass and polished concrete. The architecture is an homage to the breezeblock used widely across buildings in AlJadidah, the chosen pattern arranged in an algorithm creating an abstraction of the familiar feature.
ATHR Gallery AlUla is the first space to open in the new building. The inaugural exhibition Artist Showcase, March 5 - March 15, 2022 from 4pm to 11pm daily, features Ahaad Alamoudi, Sara Abdu and Mohammad Alfaraj. The works explore themes of human nature, ecology, the inner self, country and representation within three distinct mediums.
