OSFA also targets to support Omani artists in gaining international experiences to contribute to the development of their potential and enable them to contribute to the enrichment of the art movement in the Sultanate as well as to represent the Sultanate in international art forums.
It was inevitable that with time, other regions that share, more or less, the same artistic impulses and face the same challenge of forging an identity of their own, would be included in the exhibition as has happened in recent years.

The 17th Asian Art Biennale showcases the artistic heritage and contemporary art in Asia and kindred regions. It is the firm belief of the organisers that with each biennale, a new milestone in the unique art movement in Asia has been crossed. It also shows, through their works, the progress of established and young artists.
