Calling all established artists! The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) invites contemporary artists from or based in the Arab world to enter the Ithra Art Prize for the opportunity to receive 100,000 USD to bring their proposal to life. Ithra is one of Saudi Arabia’s leading cultural entities, and the open call for its 5th Ithra Art Prize, the region’s largest art grant, closes on April 1, 2023.

The Ithra Art Prize is open to established contemporary artists and art collectives from the 22 Arab countries (Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen). International artists who have lived in these countries for at least 10 years are also eligible to apply.

The winner will be announced on May 15, and the 2023 winning artwork will be unveiled as part of Ithra’s 5th anniversary celebrations in June. Launched in 2017, the Ithra Art Prize was presented in collaboration with Art Dubai for its first three editions. The 4th edition’s winning artwork was unveiled with the Diriyah Biennale Foundation at the Kingdom’s inaugural biennale.
