The Historic Jeddah Season which opened with tremendous success on June 8, 2019 is hosting a variety of entertaining shows, art workshops and galleries that showcase the traditional Hijazi arts and crafts. Founded in 2014 in the city of Jeddah, the Hafez Gallery exhibits art from Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. The art exhibition will discuss the inhabitant of the world today and how the human race roam in a state of continuous exile. It aims to investigate the inner and outer tensions which translate into an individual’s endless search for that particular place that they can call home. Directed by curator and photographer Marianne Catzaras, the collective exhibition is an initiative by the Department of Cooperation and Cultural Action Service (SCAC) of the French Embassy in Saudi Arabia and the Department of Cooperation and Cultural Action Service of the French Consulate General in Jeddah and in partnership with Hafez Gallery, Jeddah. The exhibition runs from June 8, 2019 until July 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m at the Aramco House, Al Balad.
