The Living Exhibition is an installation of over 1,000 traditional craft pieces made by nearly 60 artisans from Saudi Arabia.

The Living Exhibition at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence, Riyadh Diplomatic Quarter, is the culmination of work taking place across Saudi Arabia between the Saudi Handicrafts Programme at the Ministry of Culture, and Turquoise Mountain. With the generous sponsorship support of the King Salman Centre for Disability Research, the hotel honours nearly 60 Saudi artisans who have meticulously carved, incised, painted and hand-embroidered more than 1,000 pieces, which are displayed throughout its public and private guest areas. Also on display are pieces by a small number of artisans from around the world – from the United Kingdom to Afghanistan to India – who have worked with and reinterpreted traditional Saudi patterns and motifs. This landmark exhibition is currently the largest collection of Saudi handmade crafts in the Kingdom.

Open now through December 2020
