About Hayy Arts
The Art Jameel-run exhibitions space Hayy Arts anchors the Hayy complex, presenting robust, curated, museum-style shows – featuring Saudi and international artists and designers – that address themes of local and global relevance.
‘The Distance from Here’ the second exhibition at Hayy Arts brings works drawn largely from the Art Jameel Collection, on view for the first time in Saudi Arabia. The travelling exhibition focuses on spaces of transition, both physical and non-physical, exploring the ‘in-between’ shifts and exchanges and capturing the interstices of time in a moment of transformation for life and the arts in the Kingdom.
Hayy Arts exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive public programme that includes talks, performances and learning and film programme elements with contributions from regional and international artists, plus a range of workshops and activities for children, youth and lifelong-learners.
