“21,39” is a non-profit initiative organized by the Saudi Art Council, a group of local art enthusiasts who wish to contribute to the local community through the promotion of art and culture in Jeddah.

Illustrating the geographic coordinates of the city (21.5433°N, 39.1728°E), “21-39” seeks to maintain and develop the phenomenon that has, for decades, seen Jeddah at the forefront of Saudi Arabia’s contemporary art scene.

The program will include curated exhibitions, gallery openings, workshops and a series of talks and discussions that aim to build bridges with the outside world through the universal language of art.

Of equal importance, “21-39” presents Saudis with an opportunity to view and appreciate the artistic culture that exists and is developing in their homeland.

By organizing an annual city-wide initiative encompassing a range of events, partners and locations, “21-39” offers an unforgettable journey into this historic city.
