Embodying this year’s theme of Old Meets New the festival’s art exhibition will take place at the historic pearling village of Al Jazirah Al Hamra. This striking new location is a place close to many hearts in Ras Al Khaimah, due to the abundance of culture and history allowing visitors to gain an insight into life in the past. Al Jazirah Al Hamra Old Town will be turned into an open-air gallery, presenting large-scale contemporary photo works bringing life into the historic village. The sculptures on view will be on exhibit at the National Museum, notable as the childhood home of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, where the festival has been held for the last few years.

More than 70 artists will be showcased this year and the festival will be an opportunity to discover and experience the work of exciting emerging and established local, regional and international talent. Among these are Amani Al Mansoori, Maryam Al Mutawwa, Noora Al Shehhi, Helima Alhehhi, Karen Knorr, Gillian Robertson and Leonardo Montoya.
