Sharjah Art Foundation announces March Meeting 2014: Come Together

Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) announces the preliminary schedule of speakers, events, and exhibitions for the 2014 March Meeting (MM2014), taking place March 13 to 16, in Sharjah, UAE.

Conceived by Sharjah Biennial 12 (SB12) curator Eungie Joo as an integral part of the Biennial—opening in March 2015—the seventh annual MM2014 is a four-day symposium including presentations about past projects in Sharjah and the UAE, introductions to the work of artists who will be commissioned for SB12, sessions for collective research and analysis, keynote presentations by leading figures in the region, and time for informal conversation. As a departure point for SB12, MM2014 sets a tone of collaboration and exchange for the coming year.

March Meeting 2014 will coincide with exhibitions of work by Rasheed Araeen, Susan Hefuna, and Wael Shawky, on view March 13 through June 13. The March Project opens March 16, featuring new commissions by early career artists, curated by SAF President and Director Hoor Al Qasimi.

MM2014 and related events are free and open to the public. Register at [email protected].
