Creation Generation Exhibition

2014

As part of Richard Serra’s exhibitions in QM Gallery Katara and Al Riwaq, and his public art installations, QM invited artists and creative people in Qatar to express themselves in the Richard Serra – Creation Generation Project.

We handpicked six passionate and talented local artists and creatives to take part in this project - Mohammed Al Dosari, Haya Al Thani, Abdulaziz Al Ajail, Amira Fareed, Khalifa Ghaith Al Kuawri and Abdulaziz Yousef. Their task was to create a piece of art inspired by Serra's work – painting, sketch, sculpture, photographic image or video. Each week, one of them was spotlighted in our Serra Qatar storify page. Here, you can read about each artist and see their artwork.

The creative work will be on display at The Pearl Qatar, from 15th June - 26th and then at W hotel Doha from 3rd July - 17th July.

Under the patronage of our chairperson, H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa, we invited people and press to the exhibition opening on 15th June. H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa and H.E. Sheikh Hassan, founder of Mathaf, both attended and met the participating artists.
