Diriyah Biennale
Foundation hosted
its inaugural edition
in the repurposed
industrial development
of JAX in Diriyah.

JAX is a developing cultural center with ambitions to host year-round programming, educational opportunities, and connect visitors to interactive and engaging artforms.

The environment for the Biennale has been conceived through collaboration, with Jeddah-based architecture firm Bricklab leading on the design of the Biennale spaces, and US-based firm WHY leading on the Biennale’s scenography.

One area of the JAX site has been repurposed to create a custom-made art space to present immersive contemporary art exhibitions,offering an interactive experience for visitors to engage with.
