Msheireb Museums and Qatar Art Centre Collaborate to Support Qatari Talent

Yousef Al Ahmad art exhibition to take place in January 2020

 

20 November 2019, Doha, Qatar:   Msheireb Museums, the four heritage houses developed by Msheireb Properties in Msheireb Downtown Doha, and Qatar Art Centre announced today a new collaboration to launch several events and exhibitions aimed at enriching the local cultural and artistic scene in Qatar. 
 
The announcement was made during a press conference that took place at Bin Jelmood House in the attendance of celebrated artist, Yousef Ahmad and representatives of the two entities, media and art aficionados.
 
Msheireb Museums and Qatar Art Centre confirmed during the conference that the first event to take place under this new agreement will be an art exhibition for Qatari renowned artist, Yousef Ahmed, “When I remember the past”, scheduled to kick off in January 2020.
 
Since its opening four years ago, Msheireb Museums has evolved to become a sturdy platform for established local and upcoming talent, with its mission to play a more interactive and engaged role towards society.
 
Dr Hafiz Ali, Msheireb Museums Director, said: “We are excited about this collaboration with Qatar Art Centre, where we can continue to provide a platform at Msheireb Museums to showcase Qatari talent and their art. Such collaborations enable us to nurture local artistic calibers and revive Msheireb’s status as the city’s cultural hub.”

“It is important for us to continue to share the stories of Qatar, of our past, present and future and to do so through curated content by the community and local talent and their artistic endeavors is our intention.” Dr Hafiz concluded. 
 
Qatar Art Centre was established in 1997 by Sheikh Hassan bin Mohammed bin Ali Al Thani to support artists and cultural initiatives that aim to develop the community’s sense of artistic appreciation.

Sheikha Mariam bint Hasan Al-Thani, Director for Qatar Art Centre, said: “This cooperation with Msheireb Museums aligns with our strategy to enrich the cultural community in Qatar. We have a lineup of events and workshops that will encourage everyone to participate in creating, learning, and understanding art. We look forward to showcasing the best of Qatar’s art scene with Msheireb Museums.”

In his most recent artistic ventures, renowned Qatari artist Yousef Ahmad creates a vernacular visual language with a series of paintings inspired by Dr Marzook Bashir’s poem, “When I Remember the Past”, and his own childhood memories. These paintings will be on display at his exhibition in January 2020.
 
Returning to his exquisite impressionist techniques, Yousef Ahmad explains: “This collection of paintings conjures vivid images of Doha’s neighborhoods, in particular Al Jasra and Msheireb, set in a serene landscape in which lights and shadows adorns clay houses. They serve as a guide of old Qatari architecture, but they are an expression of my yearning to the past and my determination to educate future generations on our heritage.”
