Desert X AlUla Podcast

We are presenting this new Desert X AlUla podcast series at a time when the health and well-being of our audiences around the world is of great concern.  The series is free to download at a moment when many of you may be at home and not able to engage with art and culture as usual. We hope you will enjoy hearing from the Desert X AlUla co-curators and participating artists, many of whose voices have not been heard before. Thank you for listening. This Desert X AlUla podcast series gives voice to artists from Saudi Arabia, the neighboring region, Europe and the U.S and accompanies Desert X AlUla, a site-responsive exhibition that took place January 31–March 7, 2020 in the desert of AlUla, an ancient oasis in Saudi Arabia. Desert X AlUla co-curators Neville Wakefield, Raneem Farsi and Aya Alireza talk with some of the participating artists about responding to the mighty landscape and why they welcomed the opportunity to participate. Their large-scale site-specific works have inspired new dialogue about the desert and themes that range from the passage of goods and ideas along the ancient incense route, the cultural memory that passage has left, and the natural resources that have shaped the region, both past and present.
