Athr Gallery will be participating at this year's inaugural ART13 fair in London from March 1st to 3rd. The fair is a brand-new event that aims to reflect the shifting dynamics of the art world through engaging with emerging art hubs, galleries and artists worldwide, being a great platform for ATHR. They'll be bringing a solo booth to the 'London First' programme stand, featuring the work of acclaimed Palestinian multi-media artist Hazem Harb. Harb will be showing "Impossible Travel, Me and the Other Half & Inside-Outside", a presentation involving conceptual images of a hypothetical wall standing in his home country Palestine.
To complement the gallery's appearance at the Fair, Athr will be hosting a panel discussion on March 2nd at 4 pm, providing an opportunity to engage with regional experts from the UK and Middle East for a frank and insightful debate revolving around notions of artistic production, exhibition and practicalties of art in today's Saudi Arabia. As the country's art scene has sparked into life in recent years, the panel will discuss the pioneering and wide-ranging functions the gallery serves local artists and audiences, as well as recounting their experiences of touring the world's fairs and galleries over the past few years.
