Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Culture has launched a series of art projects across the country including a Sculptural Symposium.

“Nestled in the heart of Al Balad, Jeddah’s historic district, overlooking the famous waterfront and facing Midan Al Beyaa, The Ministry of Culture welcomed 20 marble sculptures created for the inaugural Red Sea International Sculpture Symposium. 20 international and local artists were invited to hand-sculpt in situ free-standing monoliths over a three week period using blocks of white marble imported from the Sultanate of Oman. The Symposium presents a literal world stage exposing a global array of artists showcasing their sculptures diversely and harmoniously alongside one another,” explained a spokesperson for the project.
