Sharjah Biennial 13
Curated by Christine Tohme
10 March — 12 June, 2017
SB13 curator, Christine Tohme, draws on her informal networks and personal bonds to critically rethink the role of the biennial. Rearranging and expanding Sharjah Biennial’s structure—both in terms of time and space—Tohme questions the format of large-scale, centralised exhibitions with a vision that is dynamic, discursive and locally rooted. Her vital interventions take place against the backdrop of infrastructural fragility within regional institutions, and channel friendships and collaborations—a practicality which has been necessary for the survival of many art landscapes, institutions and individuals.
