Ithra is launching Hijrah: In the Footsteps of the Prophet, an exhibition based on The Prophet's 8-day 400km journey ('Hijrah', meaning 'migration') from Mecca to Medina. The exhibition will trace this journey in physical terms and probe its global socio-political and cultural significance through a multidisciplinary immersive display.
The Hijrah exhibition is being mounted in collaboration with the National Museum in Riyadh, the House of Islamic Art, the King Abdulaziz Complex for Waqf Libraries, and Turquoise Mountain. Numerous artifacts provided by all partners will be on display. The exhibition also features collective works created by specialists and artists who ignited this journey through artworks, documentaries and books that tell the story of Hijrah.
