Sharjah Art Foundation Art Space

New Art Spaces by Sharjah Art Foundation

Rediscovering the magic of urban spaces

Sharjah Art Foundation's five new multi-functional art spaces were inaugurated during the opening of Sharjah Biennial 11, as part of an urban development project with an adaptive re-use approach. With approximately 20,000 square feet of interior space, connected by open-air courtyards and roof-top terraces, these spaces provide venues for SAF's growing activities and the increasing needs of its community.

For visitors, these exhibition buildings provide a range of interiors to experience art along with a variety of exterior spaces.

The buildings are located in Heart of Sharjah, which is characterized by clusters of courtyard buildings with windowless, peripheral walls that form narrow alleys. Many of the existent buildings in these areas are former traditional Emirati family homes which have been preserved or restored over the past 50 years.
