Curated by Christine Tohme, Sharjah Biennial 13 (SB13) includes a public programme in two acts, one in Sharjah (March 10–June 12, 2017) and one in Beirut (October 19, 2017–January 19, 2018), as well as the SB13 School education programme in Sharjah. Off-site projects have been conceived by four interlocutors, each engaging with one keyword underpinning the conceptual framework of SB13.
