Manal AlDowayan in her studio. London. 2019

Saudi artist Manal Al Dowayan is the latest to join the roster of represented artists at the Isabelle van den Eynde gallery (IVDE). Al Dowayan brings a dynamic, provocative practice that encompasses sculpture, audio, video and photography. With works in permanent museum collections, the Dhahran-born artist has previously exhibited at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto in 2015, the Sharjah Art Foundation in 2016 and collateral shows at the Venice Biennale in both 2009 and 2011.

An Alserkal Avenue staple, IVDE was established in 2010, four years after van den Eynde had opened B21 gallery, one of the earliest contemporary art spaces in the UAE. Since then, IVDE has gone on to represent some of the region’s most active and celebrated creatives, including Lebanese artist Raed Yassin, father of Iraqi photography Latif Al Ani and Dubai-based trio of Ramin and RokniHaerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian. With a reputation for expressing the bold and the disruptive, Al Dowayan is a fitting addition to the IVDE family.
