What is Noor Riyadh festival?
Noor Riyadh is a yearly event where they use lights and art to make Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia, look amazing. It’s like a huge art show all around the city, and they put up really big art pieces that light up the place.
In 2023, they’re bringing Noor Riyadh back to the city, and they told everyone on their official Instagram account. So, get ready to see some fantastic art and lights all over Riyadh!
Even though we don’t know all the details about Noor Riyadh 2023 yet, let’s talk about what happened last year at Noor Riyadh 2022.
In 2022, they had more than 120 cool art installations made by over 100 artists from Saudi Arabia and other countries. Some of these artists are really famous, like teamLab, Daniel Buren, Douglas Gordon, and Alicja Kwade. They also had artists from Saudi Arabia, like Muhannad Shono, Ayman Zedani, Sarah Brahim, and Ahaad Alamoudi.
The festival had all kinds of art that used light, like big art pieces that lit up the city, sculptures, and even virtual reality art. It was huge, with art in 40 different places all over Riyadh.
Besides the art, they also had workshops and talks by experts, some in person and some online on their website and app.
Noor Riyadh is part of a project called Riyadh Art, which wants to make the city look more beautiful with art and make art available to everyone, not just rich people.
Noor Riyadh 2023’s theme
We don’t know what the theme for Noor Riyadh 2023 will be yet, but looking at last year’s theme can give us some hints.
The theme for Noor Riyadh in 2022 was “We Dream of New Horizons.” This means they wanted to show a positive outlook on the future and have hope. Artists used light and brightness to express how things can change and get better for all of us in the future.
Noor Riyadh exhibition 2022
The Noor Riyadh Exhibition in 2022 looked at how light affects how we see and understand the world. Light has become a sign that things are changing.
