40 Minus - Flagship Event
al markhiya gallery seeks to encourage new artistic talent and to highlight their achievements.
40 Minus is the gallery’s flagship event. Taking place several times a year, it features a minimum of two Arab artists below the age of 40 whose work shows considerable promise.
Our aim is to encourage young artists, who are not yet ready for a solo show, to exhibit in the same space of our gallery as their more established peers. 40 Minus gives emerging artists exposure in our gallery while at the same time providing us with knowledge about up and coming talent. The event also serves as a networking forum for emerging artists. It is hoped that many of the 40 Minus artists will go on to solo exhibitions with us in the future.
The work of well known and established Arab artists will continue to be shown in the same venue allowing visitors to experience the region’s artistic talent.
Exhibiting artists will be selected by an expert committee.
