Exhibition Opening: Pearls of Wonder: a digital era

June 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Pearls of Wonder: a digital era is a multi-sensory exhibition featuring the work of five Qatari artists who explore the country’s rich and involved history of pearl diving and its related traditions and culture through a contemporary lens. Through video, audio, and VR, the exhibition evokes a time when Qatar was the most important pearl producer in the world, harkening back to a time when the tradition of pearl diving and its subsequent trade shaped the economic trajectory of the region.   

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Bahaaeldin Abudaya, Curator of Contemporary Art, Qatar Museums and features artists Alanoud Al-Buainain, Maryam Al-Homaid, Saida Al-Khulaifi, May Saleh Almannai, and Mohammed Faraj Al-Suwaidi. 


The exhibition’s presentation at QAIC is generously supported by Excelerate Energy.
