Presented under the leadership of its Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the competition was inspired by the work of internationally-acclaimed Belgian artist Luc Tuymans, whose major retrospective “Intolerance” is currently on display at the QM gallery at Al Riwaq until January 30th.“The Luc Tuymans Challenge” invited creatives from across the country to express their views of world events though art.
The winners of the competition are Katrina Boyd, a teacher at Al Khor International School; Michael Perrone, a professor at VCU-Qatar; healthcare management professional Mohammed Muslim and students Devi Sari and Maryam Nasser. Each individual hugely impressed Tuymans with their artworks, all of which are inspired by media-driven images of important moments in history that have affected the world and how we perceive it today.
