Sharjah Art Foundation has announced the recipients of the Sharjah Biennial 15 Prize: Hajra Waheed, Bouchra Khalili and Doris Salcedo. The artists are showcasing new and recent works as part of the biennial, which is entitled Thinking Historically in the Present and runs until 11 June.

Hum II (2023), a sound installation by Waheed commissioned by the biennial, features a soundtrack of songs symbolising global protest movements led by women. Khalili presents a multimedia installation entitled The Circle (2023), which highlights campaigns and theatrical performances by the Arab Workers Movement in 1970s France. Solcedo’s Uprooted (2020-22) is a large-scale work made up of 804 dead trees that links the refugee crisis with the capitalist destruction of the environment.

Honourable mentions were awarded to Lee Kai Chung, Tania El Khoury, Gabriela Golder, Amar Kanwar, Joiri Minaya, Varunika Saraf and Ibrahim Mahama. The artists were selected by a panel of jurors including Elvira Dyangani Ose, Solange Farkas and Salwa Mikdadi.
