Runa Islam, Liu Wei and Gabriel Orozco are all participating in this year's Sharjah Biennial in the featured exhibition 'Re:emerge, Towards a New Cultural Cartography', curated by Yuko Hasegawa. This year Hasegawa has proposed a Biennial that reassess the 'Westerncentrism' of knowledge in modern times and reconsiders the relationship between the Arab world, Asia, the Far East, through North Africa and Latin America.
The opening week programme will begin with a preview on 13 March followed by the evening Biennial Awards ceremony. A full schedule of events from 13-17 March will include performances, films, lectures, and the annual March meeting, a symposium featuring thematic sessions and moderated panel discussions that will reflect on and contexualise the concept of this year's Biennial.
