Saudi contemporary artist and educator Rashed Al Shashai will be showing his new body of work at Hafez Gallery in Jeddah from 28 January - 26 February 2015, in collaboration with Ayyam Gallery. Titled Section 11 in reference to the class Al Shashai teaches at Al Faisaliah School, the solo exhibition will take a didactic turn by laying out a series of societal issues witnessed by the artist in the Arab world. Translated into a variety of media, religious distortions and contrasts between tradition and modernity will be evoked with a humorous tone that’s common throughout Al Shashai’s work.
