Art Jameel’s ‘At the Edge of Land’ Exhibition Opens in Jeddah

Art Jameel, Jeddah’s well known space for art and creative communities, reveals ‘At the Edge of Land,’ a captivating group exhibition available for viewing until April 16, 2024. This exhibition delves into the intricate connections between landscapes and trade, revealing the hidden ties between geographies, resources, and commodities. ‘At the Edge of Land’ tells tales of trade routes to and from Jeddah, drawing parallels between the movement of goods and people across lands, canals, and rivers.


Hayy Arts hosts this two-floor exhibition, showcasing new commissions, loans, and important works from the Art Jameel Collection by international artists premiering in Saudi Arabia. The selected artists and artworks trace the bustling maritime pathways connecting East Asia and Europe through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.

Through various artistic mediums, including multimedia, photojournalism, installations, and canvas works, the exhibition invites audiences to explore the intersection of commerce and nature, bringing about narratives of erosion and extraction between land and sea. It challenges preconceived notions of emptiness versus development, focusing on regions and communities on the trade routes.
