Desert X AlUla

9 Feb - 23 Mar

Under the theme of In the Presence of Absence, Desert X AlUla 2024 asks ‘what cannot be seen?’ Artists taking part in this edition have been invited to explore ideas of the unseen and the inexpressible. Encouraged to engage with what is not immediately apparent, they stage new encounters with the landscape, with artworks woven into the three distinct locations across AlUla.
