IMPART Artists Grant: Sustainability & the Arts Exhibition Opening

May 18, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

The Qatar America Institute for Culture (QAIC), is please to present the 2022 IMPART Artists Grant Exhibition features new work by the three selected winners of the annual grant program. Connecting creatives and artist empowerment are central tenets of QAIC’s philosophy. The IMPART Artist Grant program provides a cash prize to emerging and mid-career artists to support the creation of a new body of work.

The exhibition features work by interdisciplinary Hoesy Corona, designer Nura Dhar and photographer Roger Mokbel. Corona, Dhar and Mokbel each responded to the open call for work that explores the intersection between sustainability and the arts. Through different mediums, including drawing, photography, and mixed-media installation, the artists address issues such as climate migration, human interventions in the natural environment, and the relationship between tradition and labor.

Their work reflects the places each artist has a relationship with, Kashmir, Lebanon, and Mexico while addressing current global challenges. The artists illustrate the diverse ways artists shed light on and document such challenges through their work.

The evening’s program will include brief remarks, an opportunity to meet exhibition artists Hoesy Corona and Nura Dhar and light refreshments. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but encouraged.

QAIC is a fully accessible building with ramp access and elevator access to every floor. Please contact us at [email protected] if there is any way we can make your visit more accommodating.
