The OASIS project links SB11 Biennial venues and the North-East and South-West parts of Sharjah’s historic centre, which is divided by Bank street, a wide thoroughfare dating from the 1970s.
The four OASIS gardens will have varying degrees of public accessibility, each creating a dialogue with specific urban contexts and their users.
Additionally, the catalogue will contain a comprehensive chronology of the decade’s key artistic, political, and cultural events and an extensive bibliography.
The catalogue is now available in The Store at MAM. To enter the exhibition website text MAM 90s to 56512. Bershad Charitable Fund, Inc., Patti and Jimmy Elliott, Holly English and Fred Smagorinsky, Tracy Higgins and James Leitner, Karen G.
