DESCRIPTION

Our inaugural exhibition SoftPower features new commissions by emerging mixed-media artists Sarah Abu Abdallah and Sarah Mohanna Al-Abdali and a special loan by one of Saudi’s leading artists Manal Al Dowayan. While varied in style and methodology, their works employ a nuanced and at times humorous approach towards exploring the position of women within contemporary society, forgoing militant tactics for those of solidarity, ambiguity and irony.
