On April 9th, Alserkal is offering a free road trip to explore Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF). Spots on the trip, which are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis, will see visitors departing from the A4 space in Alserkal Avenue at 3 p.m. for a tour of SAF and the surrounding art hubs, including The Flying Saucer and Arts Area, and returning to Dubai by 8:30 p.m.

Highlights include a tour of Simone Fattal’s solo exhibition, featuring her sculptures, ceramics, collages, and paintings, which tackle the topic of war and its socio-political contexts. Also on the schedule is a tour of Lebanese filmmakers and artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige’s ‘Two Suns in a Sunset’ exhibition, which includes two video works that have been commissioned exclusively for the exhibition and will be on display for the first time.

The visit to Sharjah’s Art Area, located in the heart of the city, offers the opportunity to see a retrospective by late Iranian artist Farideh Lashai and to stop by The Flying Saucer, a 1970s-era building that once served as a grocery store and fast-food restaurant and has now been transformed into a permanent exhibition space courtesy of Sharjah Art Foundation.
