Where We Are Going Today: Athr Gallery
  • Athr Gallery is located on Serafi Mega Mall Street, Al-Faisaliyyah, Jeddah

Athr Gallery is a contemporary art space that, for the past decade, has provided a link between contemporary artists and the Saudi public. Founded by Hamza Serafi and Mohammed Hafiz in 2009, Athr Gallery has played a major role in building the modern art scene in the Kingdom, and in doing so, has provided a steady creative platform for emerging and established local and international artists.
Across its multi-level showrooms, Athr Gallery also offers guests a visual arts bookshop, a rooftop terrace, and an array of food outlets and coffee shops. In addition, the gallery is developing a cultural exchange scheme with international artists and curators, as part of its commitment to promote cultural dialogue between Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world.
It is currently showcasing an exhibition called “Out of Place” with artwork inspired by unfamiliar environments. Its aim is to show how one can find inspiration in the discomfort of the unknown, and to encourage aspiring artists to seek residencies at Athr and other international gallery spaces.
Athr Gallery is located on Serafi Mega Mall Street, Al-Faisaliyyah, Jeddah.
