Sharjah Art Foundation’s autumn 2019 programme features major solo exhibitions of influential artists, as well as the return of annual programmes bringing together artists, curators, scholars and the public to explore new innovations in both film and printed matter.

The foundation’s autumn 2019 season includes a major retrospective of artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1922–2019) exploring the artist’s six-decade practice across sculpture, jewellery and collage; an exhibition reflecting on the evolution of the Arab Image Foundation and its collections through the work and contributions of its co-founder Akram Zaatari; a survey of paintings and sculptural works by artist Adam Henein; the first solo exhibition in the region of multi-disciplinary artist Bani Abidi which includes two new SAF commissions; and a solo show of 2019 Bonnefanten Award for Contemporary Art winner Marwan Rechmaoui.

In addition, the foundation will present the second exhibition in a series planned to run over four years, Sharjapan, celebrating aspects of contemporary Japanese art, this year focused on performance and sound-based installations; as well as the second edition of the annual Air Arabia Curator in Residence Exhibition. The foundation will also mount an exhibition of commissioned works created by the March Project 2019 artists in residence.

Two annual programmes will also return for their second editions in autumn 2019, including FOCAL POINT, Sharjah Art Foundation’s art book fair devoted to presenting printed matter from publishers, artists and collectives across the UAE, the MENASA region and the world; and Sharjah Film Platform, a celebration of emerging filmmakers from around the region and across the globe.
