In this edition, we visit the largest art event in the Arab world, the Sharjah Art Biennial in the United Arab Emirates.
The theme of this year's exhibition is the environment. We find out how the biennial fits in with the fact that the United Arab Emirates is one of the most rapidly developing man-made environments in the world - think of the gleaming rows of newly-built hotels and skyscrappers in the city of Dubai, for example.
