RECONNECTING - Contemporary Art from Qatar

RECONNECTING - Contemporary Art from Qatar: Curated by Sara Foryame and Khalid Al Hammadi, 'Reconnecting' is a showcase of eighteen established and emerging Qatari artists and six filmmakers reflecting on the ways they connect with their identity, culture and surroundings in an era in which their country is constantly shifting. The exhibition brings a diverse and refreshing selection of work that encourages dialogue on the power of connection, highlighting the importance of reconnecting with our past, present and future. Selected artists have chosen to document the shift, progress, and concern for their country’s rapid growth through various mediums spanning painting, installation, photography and moving image. One is invited to reflect on his own identity as well as to discover similarities between himself, the work and the artists. Taking place 11 November-24 December, 2016 at the P21 Gallery, 21-27 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD​.
