Qatar Contemporary: Art and Photography will showcase Qatar’s rapid social and urban transformation through the eyes of talented emerging artists, both local and expatriate, residing in Qatar. With over 45 artists and 100 artworks on view, and 350 photographs from 55 Qatar based photographers, plus 200 photographs from the Qatar Museums historical collections, the exhibition will explore implications of this sudden change on the way people think and how the community as a whole sees itself.

The exhibition which includes collaborations with VCUQatar explores various themes in defining the contemporary, such as materiality, with its connotations of construction and progress, alluding to the building blocks of modern institutions and society. Another theme depicts how cultural practice and interpretation constantly shifts between tradition and the push for progress. The final theme bears witness to the mounting effects of digital technology and automated processes on art and Qatari society as a whole.

Materials by Manege.
