Art Jameel is showcasing works of contemporary design inspired by traditional crafts of Saudi Arabia, by five alumni of the Jameel House of Traditional Arts in Jeddah at Saudi Design Week this November.
The exhibition will present a selection of works by five graduates of the 2018-2019 one-year traditional arts programme at the Jameel House of Traditional Arts in Jeddah: Asma Saud Alarifi, Angham Abdulaziz Munshi, Nuha Abdullah Alamoudi, Nour Abdullah Gary and Sarah Abdulrahman Aljehani.
The diverse works on display draw on Jeddah’s rich history of craft, material use, and artisanal excellence and include ceramic panels, paintings and a coffee table, all crafted with traditional materials and techniques.
Malak Masalati, also a graduate of the 2018-2019 Jameel House programme, will participate in Saudi Design Week with a solo exhibition of her work.
