The touring exhibition from the Saudi Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia is brought to Hayy Jameel as part of a collaboration between Art Jameel and The Saudi Architecture and Design Commission.
‘Accommodations’ displays rare found images, archival material, urban plans, architectural models, renders, sketches and ephemera that trace the history of shelters, examining how the built environment and urban fabric adapt to accommodate shifting social conditions.
Art Jameel invites upcoming and established artists from or resident in the Kingdom to submit proposals that re-imagine Hayy Jameel’s facade as the first point in a conversation between the complex, the community it serves, and the broader public. The awarded artist(s) will receive an artist’s fee and a production budget will be attached to the project. Deadline for submission: June 3, 2023 (midnight, Saudi Arabia)
