    Minnesota Street Project in association with The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (iThra) and Gharem Studio: GENERA#ION - Contemporary Art from Saudi Arabia

    Artists: Sarah Abu Abdallah, Ahaad Alamoudi, Njoud Alanbari, Ahmad Angawi, Dana Awartani, Ayman Yossri Daydban, Manal Al Dowayan, Abdulnasser Gharem, Ajlan Gharem, Masameer, Nugamshi, Shaweesh, Rashed Al Shashai, Dhafer Al Shehri, Telfaz 11.

    Comment by AB: In this cross-cultural endeavor, a group of Saudi Arabian artists share perspectives on society in their part of the world, addressing its norms as well as taboos in their art. An important aspect of the journey here is also to explore and understand American day-to-day life. The hope is to bridge a divide between nations and cultures that needs far more outreach and understanding, and far less divisive and inflammatory rhetoric. Worth seeing. It's a privilege for San Francisco to host this show.
