Qatar Museums extends the first solo exhibition by a Qatari artist until the end of March
Qatar Museums has announced the extension of one of its most popular collections, the Yousef Ahmad Exhibition “Story of ingenuity”, which will now run until Sunday 28th March 2015 at the Qatar Museums Gallery in Katara.
As a pioneer of Qatar’s modern art movement, Yousef Ahmad’s artistic journey has spanned more than three decades. His work has been influenced by his surroundings and emotional ties with Qatar’s culture and traditions.
This exhibition highlights the Qatari artist’s body of work through a precise selection of his most striking artworks from his early works in 1970s through to the present day. It showcases three phases in Yousef Ahmad’s artistic career, from the early oil paintings that include the historic depiction of Al Zubarah Fort, to his mixed media calligraphic pieces to his new conceptual artworks presenting his ability in developing an innovative artistic style.
Yousef Ahmad: Story of ingenuity is located at the QM Gallery, Building 10, Katara
Friday 3:00 TO 21:00
Closed on Sunday
