Contemporary art is beginning to make a name for itself in Jeddah. In February 2012, the eyes of the contemporary art world turned to Saudi Arabia. Seven years since its foundation, and after blockbuster exhibitions in London, Venice, Berlin, Istanbul and Dubai, Edge of Arabia, a Saudi-focused contemporary arts initiative, hosted its first exhibition in Jeddah. In addition to outlining this newly emerging art scene, this chapter includes a listing of the country’s leading hotels and resorts, as well as useful telephone numbers and facts for visitors. It also includes information about etiquette, language, visas, currency, transport and more.
