The November’s Fire Station Artist in Residence is the RENOWNED Qatari artist Faraj Daham who is hosting an exhibition, inspired by his month-long residency in “What about Art?” Foundation in Mumbai.
The art event titled ‘See the Unseen’ is part of ongoing celebrations of the Qatar-India Year of Culture 2019, which aims to promote mutual understanding, recognition and appreciation between the two countries through various programmes and initiatives.
The exhibition, which will be open to the public until November 29, addresses the concept of historical concealment and exclusion through a qualitative approach between what is visible and what is real.
During his residency, Daham relied on local tangible and intangible materials to create artworks. Such materials include Chinese fishing nets from Kochi, India, which he used alongside handmade manuscripts to hide the intangibility of history.
Daham’s contemporary work is inspired by the transformation of the world around him and responds to the rapid changes experienced in Qatari society. His work has been displayed at Katara, Mathaf, QM Gallery Al Riwaq, and Al Markhiya Gallery, among others.
Saturday to Thursday from 9 am to 7 pm
Friday from 9 to 11:30 am, 1:30 pm to 7 pm
