Approaches┬áis the title of the joint exhibition of artists from Saudi Arabia.Its visual pathways are manifested in the selection of the participating artists.The cultural experiences and pathways vary between the different times and places where such experiences occurred, like the different visualizations from which each artist derives his/her intensity of sensitivity that manifests in his/her visual inputs.The participating works share the vitality of the intellectual and visual trends that relate to the ultra modern states and pathways, yet each work is different in its aesthetic dimensions.Most of the works adopt the visual images that transcend individual interpretations. Their terrains seem to be divergent and convergent at the same time, which makes it hard to delimit them in a single trend of thought, or tools, or even imaginative visualizations. The eloquence of the “Approaches” exhibition lies in the structure and transformation of the works in the minds of the participants.The participating works stand close on the exhibition walls, yet they are considerably diverse in their aesthetic individuality. This is what makes the experience captivating with the diverse aesthetic qualities of the works, which allow for a rich and controversial dialogue.
