Rhizoma (Generation in Waiting) Collateral Event of the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia

Curated by London-based art critic and independent curator Sara Raza and Saudi-based poet, curator and artist Ashraf Fayadh, Rhizoma draws its inspiration from an emerging younger generation of Saudi artists, whose works embrace multiplicity alongside new artistic vocabularies in technology, science and natural philosophy. The exhibition’s premise draws from the actual rhizoma, the ancient Greek word for the underground root of a plant that shoots its roots both horizontally and vertically, as a metaphor for a bold new generation of artists who are challenging the force of gravity through inspiring projects.
