Abdulnasser Gharem: Saudi Arabia art and war

A look into the work of conceptual artist and lieutenant colonel in the Saudi Army, Asdulnasser Gharem.


As both a conceptual artist and lieutenant colonel in the Saudi army, Abdulnasser Gharem is somewhat of an unusual figure. Described as the "rock star of Saudi contemporary art", he recently made history when his installation Message/Messenger sold for a record price at auction in Dubai. Gharem will be joining us at the Frontline Club to discuss the inspiration behind his work, which is now in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Saudi Arabian Ministry of Culture & Information. He will also reflect on how he reconciles being a soldier and an artist, shedding light on Saudi's secretive society and culture.
