Jeddah’s home for the arts, Hayy Jameel, presents ‘Silent Hands’ (May 29 – October 16, 2023) a new group exhibition exploring questions of work and leisure in Asia and its diasporas.

With works by Pacita Abad, Hangama Amiri, Mohammed Kazem, Maha Malluh, Khairullah Rahim, Anhar Salem and Aarti Sunder, the exhibition engages with spaces of work, both physical and virtual, and their intersections with gender, financial independence, social mobility, and migration.

Curated by Art Jameel’s Rotana Shaker, alongside guest curators Zain Al Saie and Jean Wong, the exhibition is part of Hayy Jameel’s commitment to supporting curatorial development and a prelude to a new annual open call for curatorial projects to be announced soon.
