Edge of Arabia is an art exhibition displaying in London, UK where it showcases the new wave of contemporary art of 17 Saudi artists.  Artists participating include; Faisal Samra, Manal Al Dowayan, Abdulnasser Gharem, Lulwah Al-Humoud, Ahmad Mater Aseeri and much more.

The exhibition aims to reveal and empower the unknown voice of the Saudi artists. The exhibition does not come through a propaganda-approach to try and eradicate the negative notions and impressions of the country, yet it desires to create a long-lasting channel to communicate through freely and constantly.

Quote from Ahmad Mater Aseeri:

“What I like about ‘Edge of Arabia’ is that it takes the challenge as opposed to just speaking about the necessity or urgency of doing so. Now it is ‘Edge of Arabia’s’ job to communicate with the world in a positive way, and above all to illuminate.”
