Diplomats and cultural envoys from every country in the area that is participating in the Qatar-MENASA 2022 Year of Culture were present for the inaugural event.

The Islamic Art Museum Reimagined

The Museum of Islamic Art was the first facility established by Qatar Museums in 2008 under the direction of Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa. It is a masterpiece of architecture created by the world renowned and Pritzker Prize-winning architect I.M. Pei (1917-2019).

The Museum, which Pei purposefully intended to be prominently located on its own reclaimed island on the Corniche, qatar flag serves as a beacon for Islamic art as well as a venue for global debate and interaction that unites East and West and the past and present.

A thorough visitor trail, enhanced explanatory materials to help contextualise the masterworks, and new mobile and kid-friendly tools are all part of the redesign of MIA’s collection galleries, which makes the museum more accessible to families and younger visitors.

The galleries, which examine the major traditions of Islamic workmanship, are set up according to broad historical and cultural topics, time periods, and geographic locations.

The MIA also debuts a brand-new section on Islam in Southeast Asia that focuses on how diverse civilizations are connected via exhibitions on the interchange of ideas and the commerce of products inside and outside of the Islamic world.

With a reframed entrance and refurbished cafés and shop spaces, the improved and extended experience facilitates visitor flow to accommodate a broader audience. The building has undergone all renovations in accordance with I.M. Pei’s design qatar flag. The French interior design and architecture firm Wilmotte & Associés, whom I.M. Pei had previously hired, and MIA once more worked together throughout the reinstallation process.

The Flag Plaza is a broad emblem of the varied population we welcome in Qatar and the strong ties formed through qatar flag cross-cultural contact, according to Her Excellency Sheikha Al MayassaQatar Museums’ Chairperson, Bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.

The stonework artwork by Najla Al Zein brilliantly captures its message and will serve as a perpetual reminder of our connectivity as a world. I extend an invitation to all Qataris and guests to utilise this qatar flag new venue and join in a celebration of our shared humanity.

Us, Her, and Him is an installation that considers human connection and interaction, according to Najla El Zein. It is made up of several hand-sculpted limestone seats that stretch over 313 metres and are placed all around the Flag Plaza.

Since this is a place of unity, working in a public setting gave my practise a deeper level of significance. The sculptures, which are meant to be used as practical seats, depict numerous forms of contact, including acquaintanceship, companionship qatar flag, and love as well as introversion, self-assurance, familiarity, obstruction, and fluidity. Despite the fact that each component is unique in its own right, they work as a whole.
