Alãan Artspace Events

Alaan (meaning “Now”) Artspace is Riyadh’s key contemporary forum, at the heart of the city’s emerging arts scene. As a proudly authentic Saudi style evolves, on its own terms, in Riyadh, Alaan Artspace fosters the city’s growing arts community through exhibitions, event programmes and an important arts library.

Our stunning exhibition space is deliberately set at street level, welcoming a relaxed, immersive experience. We seek to exhibit four shows a year, allowing the freedom to examine, contemplate and discuss each show in depth.

The gallery’s roster of resident artists has grown to include Ehab Mamdouh, Abdullah Al-Othman, Sarah Abu Abdallah and Sarah Mohanna Al-Abdali.
