In the heart of Riyadh, a captivating art space has emerged, promising to elevate your artistic senses and spirits. Lift, an exclusive social art club, as it aptly claims, is more than just a conventional art hub. It’s a sanctuary for self-expression, community, and boundless creativity. With its three distinct sections—Lift the Gallery, Lift the Studio, and Lift the Space—this innovative establishment is redefining the art experience in Saudi Arabia.
Nouf Bin Abdulaziz, the owner of Lift, shared her motivation behind the venture: “I started Lift wanting a place for like-minded people to let go and get it all out in a community free of judgment. And I wanted it to be my personal sweet escape, but it bloomed and ended up being everyone’s sweet escape from reality.”
What sets Lift apart is its unwavering belief in the transformative power of art. The creative hub doesn’t just aim to exhibit artworks; it aspires to create immersive and unforgettable encounters with creativity. It opens its doors with a commitment to enriching spaces and fostering a sense of wonderment through art.
The process of curating the artworks that grace the gallery’s walls is a fusion of passion and purpose. “We start by brainstorming our upcoming exhibition and checking out our archives on artists we know,” Nouf explains. The meticulous selection process goes beyond bringing art to Riyadh; it’s about bringing exclusive, remarkable art to the city. Themes are carefully chosen, whether they involve solo exhibitions or group showcases that share a common artistic idea or medium.
As the summer chapter of Lift journey draws to a close with the vibrant “Global Color Explosion” exhibition, visitors can anticipate an equally enthralling lineup coming soon. Nouf hints at an upcoming solo exhibition by an artist from South Africa, ensuring a fresh burst of creativity and cultural exchange. The excitement doesn’t stop with exhibitions alone; Lift Gallery’s agenda extends to artistic workshops for adults and children. Keep an eye on their social media handles for more updates on these captivating events that combine the world of yoga with art.
Lift strikes the perfect balance between tradition and innovation. It is a space where artists, enthusiasts, and newcomers can embrace the extraordinary, creating an atmosphere that elevates souls and inspires minds. So, if you’re seeking a creative sanctuary that truly lives up to its motto of “a place that lifts you up,” Lift is ready to sweep you off your feet and into the world of boundless artistic expression.
