Football Without Boundaries
WebIn commemoration of Qatar’s National Sport Day 2014, Brazilian photographer Caio Vilela depicts the dynamism of street football. Football, to many is known as ‘the beautiful game’. From well-equipped professionals in spectacular stadiums to an average enthusiast’s backyard or street corner, this transnational sport is played world over. Needing only a ball and some players, the energy within this game has the ability to transform any site. (Source: KAC)

Resonance – Solo exhibition by Mariana Heilmann in the Main Gallery
1-Thread pieceThis exhibition of mixed media artworks and prints by Doha-based contemporary artist Mariana Heilmann stems from a continuation of her Energy series from 2005-6. Exploring the focus found in an unconscious and improvised process, the works see unity between the scientific and the spiritual, finding order in the smallest and the largest phenomena of both consciousness and the natural, physical world.

Museums
Mona Hatoum: Turbulence
mona hatoumThe exhibition Mona Hatoum: Turbulence brings to the forefront the diversity of Mona Hatoum’s work over the last 30 years. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition’s premise builds on the artist’s topical work Turbulence (2012), a 4 x 4 metre square composed of thousands of glass marbles laid directly onto the floor. Placed exactly at the centre of the exhibition, this installation lies at the heart of a linear but non-chronological trajectory whereby a number of unexpected juxtapositions echo the complexity through which the artist has managed to challenge, and at times disturb, our experience of the ordinary.
