Bahrain Annual
Fine Arts Exhibition

The 40th Bahrain Annual Fine Arts Exhibition

Since the early 70’s, HRH Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain, has been a keen supporter of the fine arts movement in the country. This support is exemplified by HRH’s patronage of the various fine arts exhibitions and encouragement and recognition of local artists.


Thanks to this unwavering support, the Bahrain Fine Arts Exhibition has become an important annual event. Organized by the Ministry of Culture, the exhibition is a celebration which reflects Bahrain’s rich cultural and civilizational heritage and development.


For the past 40 years, the Bahrain Fine Arts Exhibition showcases the works of established and rising talents in the field, each with its own unique artistic style and flair that add to the overall experience. Together, the exhibited works illustrate cultural trends and changes within the local artistic scene.


This year, the Ministry of Culture will focus on demonstrating the tremendous strides made by the fine arts movement over the past four decades through the lens of Bahrain Fine Arts Exhibition.  Artists from all across Bahrain will be exhibiting their finest works in what is expected to be a memorable celebration of creative diversity and limitless imagination.
