Every year, during the holy month of Ramadan, Mono Gallery embraces the atmosphere and spirituality of the blessed month in its annual exhibition “Abaq Ramadan”. The third edition of the exhibition showcases artwork by a group of 24 pioneering and emerging artists from Saudi Arabia and the Arab World. The exhibited artwork includes, painting, sculpture, and photography, that illuminate various themes from the Arabic culture, and draw on references from the history of the region. This includes architecture, calligraphy, tales from the Quran, as well as Pre-Islamic symbols among others, all of which embodies the beautiful “fragrance” of Ramadan in Abaq 3.
