The radiant glow of the capital is growing stronger, and the reason behind this luminous spectacle is none other than the highly anticipated Noor Riyadh 2023, officially setting the city aglow once again.
Prepare to be mesmerized as this extraordinary festival returns to Riyadh this November, accompanied by a cutting-edge light art exhibition showcasing a curated selection of artworks handpicked by the esteemed Lead Curator Neville Wakefield, in collaboration with Curator Maya Al Athel.
Distinguished as the grandest light art festival in the world, this year’s event will unveil a stellar collection of art installations carefully chosen by lead curator Jérôme Sans.
Last year’s theme, ‘We Dream of New Horizons,’ ignited a spark of hope in the hearts of visitors, encouraging them to embrace positivity and optimism while contemplating the Kingdom’s remarkable journey of renewal and transformation. We can only imagine the wonders that await us in this year’s iteration.
Noor Riyadh embarks on a noble mission to enrich community engagement, infusing the city with artistic pieces that ignite a passion for beauty. By promoting art in public spaces, nurturing the local art movement, and fostering boundless creativity and innovation, this festival becomes a motivation for a modern artistic movement in the Middle East.
His Highness Prince Badr bin Farhan Al-Saud, chairman of the steering committee for Riyadh Art, said, “Noor Riyadh honors Riyadh’s rich cultural heritage and areas of natural beauty through a carefully curated program while creating a dialogue between tradition and modernity and the city’s past and future.”
A jewel in the crown of Riyadh Art, one of the four visionary projects championed by the Royal Commission for Riyadh City, this initiative aspires to transform the capital into an inspiring “gallery without walls.” Its radiant spectacle can serve as an inspiration for other Middle Eastern nations, gracing their iconic landmarks and streets with similar artistic splendor. Beyond its aesthetic allure, this artistic endeavor promises to enhance tourism, rendering the streets a vibrant, sprawling art gallery.
