A new exhibition in Jedda, Saudi Arabia is one more likely to be seen in art capitals like London, Venice, or Berlin.  

The show, which features 40 pieces by 22 young, edgy artists is organized by Edge of Arabia, an independent art initiative.  

According to this article, this could not have happened in the country just 10 years ago.  Even the young Saudi family attended the opening, further showing a cultural shift being watched by the art community.
