US / Saudi Arabia Visits
King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture has embarked on a program to invite 50 US Cultural Influencers to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia throughout 2017. The aim of these visits is to create opportunities for direct peer-to-peer exchange between cultural leaders in both countries, as well as providing direct access and insight into the creative and cultural developments in Saudi Arabia.
In February 2017, a group of 18 delegates from the US travelled to Saudi Arabia to visit artist studios and art spaces in Jeddah, as well as for a preview of the highly anticipated King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture in Dhahran.
The US 50 Cultural Influencers program is part of a multi-strand international program initiated by King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture promoting contemporary art from Saudi Arabia in the United States.
