Alula: Merveille D'Arabie

  • through January 19, 2020
  • Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris
One of Saudi Arabia's lesser-known but richest regions lies in its northwest: Al-Ula, subject of this exhibit that reveals fruits of more than 20 years of research. It is an invitation to a journey from antiquity to the present, in the heart of a once-sumptuous oasis transported to the Institut Du Monde Arabe and showcasing, through modern technology, newly discovered objects and the allure of historic photographs.
