About Contemporary female artists from Saudi Arabia – Fonāna
Foam proudly presents the exhibition Fonāna (فنانة), meaning ‘female artist’ in Arabic. This showcase delves into the world of eight contemporary female artists from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, capturing their candid perspectives from within the nation. It offers a unique perspective on a country that, by Western standards, is often seen as conservative and of which the accessibility to outsiders is sometimes underestimated.
This exhibition was made possible with thanks to the Greenbox Museum.
Foam is supported by the VriendenLoterij, Foam Members, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, the VandenEnde Foundation and the City of Amsterdam.
