EOA was founded by a small collective of artists who met in the mountains of Aseer, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. What began as a border-crossing collaboration, against the backdrop of the last Gulf War, is now an established platform for artistic exchange, grown bold through the realisation of international projects and the grassroots support for its mission. We are currently on the road across the United States.
