Qatar Museums welcomes internationally-acclaimed artist Luc Tuymans for major exhibition at Al Riwaq
Qatar Museums presents Intolerance, a major retrospective by internationally acclaimed Belgian artist Luc Tuymans. This is his first solo show in the Gulf region, and it will run from 18th October 2015 to 30 January 2016 at the QM Gallery Al Riwaq, Doha.
The exhibition will include a series of wall paintings and a new body of work, ‘The Arena’, created specifically for the show. The exhibition has been curated by Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator of Special Projects in Modern Art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Spanning some thirty years, the exhibition speaks to certain abiding preoccupations that Luc Tuymans has long explored against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world. Well aware from the outset of his career that painting as an art-form was widely considered in crisis, Tuymans adopted a contrasting stance. Painting became for him a vehicle through which the most urgent and volatile issues, whether relating to history, identity, nationalism and belief, or to headline social and political events could be opened up to a nuanced debate.[boxify cols_use =”1″ cols =”1″ position =”none” order =”none” box_spacing =”10″ padding =”10″ background_color =”#3c3c3c” border_style =”solid” ]
