Al-Tiba9 (الطباق) focuses on light as a manifestation of energy, a principle that makes it possible to reach the phenomenological world, an element of knowledge by getting closer to the center to reach these levels of reality. This transgressive contemporary Arab show emerges between lights and shadows, from here and there, reaching for profound hope but staying rooted in reality.

 

PAST EDITIONS

 

Al-Tiba9 international contemporary art dedicated to the visual arts, in particular painting, sculpture, photography, video & net art and performance. Al-Tiba9 is an Algerian art project curated by independent Algerian curator. Its aim to seize in a particular and intuitive way the social reality that consists of creating an interface between the west and the Arab world.

For this reason, Al-Tiba9 curator established an annual international exhibition since 2013. It has grown and created year after year a network of collaborations with international artists from orient and western origins, Museums and Galleries.

During its six editions, Al-Tiba9 curators have worked with established artists from different backgrounds in the international art scene and promoted emergent artists from paintings, photography, installation, video & virtual art performance and Fashion design.


Since 2015, the annual exhibition has been held at Bardo National Museum of Algiers, and it was extended to the western for its 5th and 6th edition that were held at "UPF -Pompeu Fabra" Cuitadella in Barcelona, Spain and it will continue for its next exhibitions at MAMA contemporary and modern art museum of Algiers, one of the most popular venues for contemporary art in Algeria and also in most popular capitals for art in Europe.

 

Visual Arts

 

The Al-Tiba9 is a curated live exhibition project and participation is by invitation through the curators only. There is no open call nor a formal application process. Each artist is contacted by Al-Tiba9 curators about one or more artworks or a production of a new work related to the theme of the current edition.

However, there is an open call for emergent artists that will be selected by the curator to be featured in Al-Tiba9 Art Magazine. Its aim is to promote and support emerging artists and their artistique production.
