“Create Dangerously,” convened by Sharjah Biennial 14 (SB14) co-curator Omar Kholeif, capped off the 2019 March Meeting on March 11. Kholeif, whose exhibition project at the biennial was titled “Making New Time,” began the morning with a ruminative poem that featured him buying holiday presents on Amazon.com, and ended his introduction with remarks by his mentor, the late art critic Jean Fischer, on whether art is an effective mediator of change.
