Sharjah Biennial Production Programme

The launch of the Sharjah Biennial Production Programme is a timely 5 year experiment that will explore the shifting spectrum of creative practice and try to identify marginal processes of thoughts, relations and acts arising from art and its vicinities.

This programme is a natural extension to our work in progress, which has so far orchestrated unprecedented turfs for the propagation of art in the region and beyond, and is determined to remain the artists' vehicle for the realisation of their projects.

Our aim is not to pose as the locus of your dreams but to adapt rather, to your dream of a locus.

Empowered by this vision we, at the Sharjah Biennial, are reaching out to all artists and non-artists to send us their ideas and proposals, and venture with us on joint production projects slated for the coming 9th edition of the Sharjah Biennial in March 2009.
