Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj, extends beyond previous Sharjah Biennial formats in both space and time to encompass exhibitions, projects and education programmes in five locations. Curated by Christine Tohme, Sharjah Biennial 13 (SB13) includes a public programme in two acts, one in Sharjah (March 10–June 12, 2017) and one in Beirut (October 19, 2017–January 19, 2018), as well as the SB13 School education programme in Sharjah. Off-site projects have been conceived by four interlocutors, each engaging with one keyword underpinning the conceptual framework of SB13. Kader Attia investigates water in Dakar (January 8–9, 2017), Zeynep Oz considers crops in Istanbul (opening May 13, 2017), Lara Khaldi studies earth in Ramallah (opening August 10, 2017) and Ashkal Alwan reflects on the culinary in Beirut (opening October 15, 2017). SB13 also features two notable components in the form of digital platforms: chip-ship, a data-rich source of research as well as the Biennial’s year-long publishing platform www.tamawuj.org.
