ABOUT US

Each year, the Saudi Art Council strives to take another step in the right direction that will bring us closer to our vision of making art and culture available to all, to instill it as a right and not a privilege, to be experienced and enjoyed as part of daily life and most importantly to provide the tools through which it can be appreciated and understood. Art is universal and part of our human nature. While recently art has been used as a means of cross-cultural understanding, it is our fervent hope that it can also be used to better understand ourselves.

About

The Saudi Art Council

The Saudi Art Council (SAC) was founded by a group of local arts patrons, led by Her Royal Highness, Princess Jawaher bint Majed, in 2013. SAC is one of the first platforms in the Kingdom to engage with local artists to produce self-owned works within the framework of a curated annual exhibition of an international caliber: 21,39 Jeddah Arts. Our annual exhibitions have flourished through the talent and guidance of each of the globally respected curators we’ve appointed each year.

Through our 21,39 Jeddah Arts exhibition, we have not only launched the careers of numerous artists, but we have been at the forefront of a number of this decade’s most influential and successful artworks to come out of the Kingdom. Beyond our commitment to produce this exhibition for the local and international art worlds, we strive to educate artists and community members through our work and approach here at the Saudi Art Council.
