“Pearls of Wonder” Exhibition
February 16 - April 20
In celebration of our 2023 theme “technology & the arts,” QAIC is excited to host Pearls of Wonder, an immersive digital art exhibition exploring Qatar’s rich history of pearling through the lens of young Qatari artists working today.
The exhibition was previously on view as a limited-time event in New York City during the 2021 Qatar-USA Year of Culture, and was curated by Qatar Museums’ Curator of Contemporary Art, Dr. Bahaa Abudaya.
The five participating artists–Mohammed Faraj Al Suwaidi, Maryam Al Homaid, Alanoud Al Buainain, May Al Mannai and Saida Al Khulaif–are alumni of Qatar Museums’ Fire Station, a contemporary art space committed to supporting artists through its Artist in Residence program, as well as engaging the local communities through events, exhibitions, and public art.
Stay tuned for more information on the opening of this exciting and innovative digital exhibition!
