Al-Tiba9 Contemporary Art is an international exhibition of contemporary art, featuring art in the field of Photography, Painting, Installation, Sculpture, Video art, Virtual Art, Performance, and Fashion design. Its annual editions are held at MAMA National Modern and Contemporary Art Museum of Algiers. This majestic five-story building is one of the jewels of neo-Moorish architecture and a popular venue for contemporary art in Algeria.
Al-Tiba9 Contemporary Art aims to seize, in a particular way, the social reality that consists of creating an interface between the West and the Arab world. Al-Tiba9 exhibits many well-known, established artists from different backgrounds. It introduces emergent artists to the international scene with a primary focus on contemporary art reflecting modern society and its environment, encouraging innovation and diversity of mediums, which engage potentially the today’s art scene. For this reason, Al-Tiba9 Contemporary Art has established annual international exhibitions since its foundation in 2013. Year after year, this has grown a network of collaborations with museums in Algeria and Spain, Art professionals, and international artists.
