Check out this exploration of the hours between sunset and sunrise. 

What do you do when the sun sets? In the Night at Saudi Museum of Contemporary Art explores this question. Running from 15 February to 20 May, it is all about the night, and how people spend the time between sunset and sunrise.

The show brings together more than 30 local and international artists from Argentina, Croatia, France, India, Japan, Morocco, Pakistan and Tunisia.

A sucker for a good story, if you invite Kohinoor to a gallery, comedy night, new restaurant, hiking trip, cycle ride, pool day or just about any activity, she’ll probably say yes – that is if she isn’t busy planning her next adventure.
