Sharjah Art Foundation has announced that it will be reopening selected venues from 26th June 2020. To ensure the safety and well-being of its staff, visitors and community, the Foundation has established a range of new health and safety protocols in line with the recommendations set by UAE government authorities. Among other measures, these include enhanced disinfection and cleaning schedules and standards, reduced visitor capacity, temperature checks for staff and visitors, and a no-touch viewing experience throughout all open venues.

Reopening will begin with the Foundation’s current exhibition, Art in the Age of Anxiety, and its permanent installation, Rain Room Sharjah. To visit either venue, visitors are encouraged to book a reservation in advance. Both venues will be open to the public from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday to Thursday, and 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Friday.
