Upon his arrival to the event, Sheikh Sultan was received by Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Sheikh Essam bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Adviser at the Office of the Ruler of Sharjah, and a number of senior officials.
Sheikh Sultan toured the Biennial and was briefed by Eungie Joo, a former curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York regarding this edition’s shows, which include performances, film screenings, tours and workshops.
