With an aim to highlight Saudi and Gulf identity, Misk Art Institute has launched a photography and digital exhibition at Prince Faisal Bin Fahd Fine Arts Hall (Masaha). Curated by Latifa Abdul Rahman Al Khalifa, Imprint features the work of 17 Saudi and Gulf artists.

The core of Imprint exhibition is to invite artists based in Saudi Arabia and its neighboring GCC countries to explore their definition of identity by means of the image in the form of photography, film and digital artworks. The immediacy and accessibility of the aforementioned mediums have afforded creatives across a wide spectrum of proficiency a unique platform which has been even further amplified by advents in technology and social media.

The artists in this exhibition contribute to four sub-categories; the past and memory, a deconstruction of the self, connections with nature, and mindful reflections.


The exhibition runs until the 28th of January.
