The exhibition will run until 26th December 2019, and it includes artworks by 27 artists from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The artworks in the exhibition deal with the relationship between man and architecture and how one can affect the other, and they also explore human experiences over time, and the nature of society reflecting on patterns of architecture.
From Within exhibition includes a variety of artworks in many mediums: Paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations that raise questions about the relationship between architecture and human behaviour, and how human experiences and the nature of society reflect on the substance of civilisation development.

It is also part of a comprehensive plan developed by the Ministry of Culture to transform Ad-Diriyah into a contemporary arts area exhibiting art from the Kingdom and across the globe.
The exhibition emphasises the role of the Ministry in supporting high-level artistic and cultural activities. The exhibition also highlights the Ministry’s pursuit to open doors for artists to showcase their talent and creativity to local and international audiences.
