An array of artists from across the region have teamed up to showcase their work that reflects and interprets the significance of an ‘Azeema’.
Azeema comes from the Arabic word azouma, meaning feast – a social event or a party in Khaleeji societies that cultivates a sense of belonging as well as fosters connectivity between families, friends and extended relations.
It is a place of unity that celebrates historical and cultural traditions.
Hence, the Misk Art Institute has organised an Azeema exhibition, which will be hosted by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities at the Art Centre tonight, with doors opening at 7pm.
The showcase will feature photography, sculptures and installations by 10 Saudi Arabian and Khaleeji artists including Aisha Alsowaidi, Bader Albalawi, Elham AlDawsari, Ishaq Madan, Khalid AlBanna, Mashael Alsaie, Noura AlSerkal, Saad AlHowede, Shatha Alhusseini and Tasneem AlSultan.
The immersive and artistic experience will run until September 23, from 9am to 8pm.
