Riyadh Hosts An Art Exhibition On Women Empowerment

Princess Tarfa Bint Fahad 

Set to remain open until 25th November 2020, “Lift KSA,” a social and arts club for Saudi Arabia’s art lovers and creators to unite, has opened its doors to “Ascent" in Riyadh. The must-see exhibit features a number of female Saudi Arabian artists who are creators across a variety of disciplines.

In an official statement from the organizers of the exhibition, the art showcase looks to “showcase young Saudi female artists and honor Princess Tarfa Bint Fahad for her contribution and achievements for the art community in Saudi Arabia. Ascent’s goal is also to raise awareness about the diversity of our local Saudi virtuosos, demonstrate the significance of art, and highlight the effective healing and inspiration it gives to our daily lives.”

Over the past year the art scene in Saudi Arabia has seen many changes with the support of the Kingdom’s Ministry of Culture that has encouraged emerging and established artists to showcase their work and expand their horizons.

“Lift” is an initiative that was launched by Nouf Bint Abdulaziz Al Saud, a 23-year-old Saudi designer, whose aim is to uplift the creative community in the Kingdom.

“Ascent” features Saudi Arabian female artists of the likes of Saudi based Ekleel Alfaris, an artist, musician, photographer and horseback rider, who is best known for her intricate wire sculptures; Naseebah Al Sultan, a member of the Arabic Language Department from the Imam University and a regular exhibitor at the Lift gallery whose work is heavily influenced by nature, and others such as Haneen Al Shogairan and Sarah Al Marshad.
