al markhiya gallery presents Connections, a group exhibition in celebration of Qatar – USA year of Culture 2021, showcasing the work of Qatari artists who have studied in the United States from 1979 to 2021.
The exhibition includes works by a wide range of artists whose studies range from art and design, to those who discovered their interest in making visual art alongside their core programs of study while in the United States. The works presented illustrate how these Qatari artists connect with society, home, heritage, the environment, and oneself, through the different media of drawing, painting, sculpture, and the repurposing of existing materials.
Connections contributes to the events surrounding Qatar – USA Year of Culture 2021. The Year of Culture was created to assist in building and promoting cultural exchanges and people-to people connections between the United States and the State of Qatar.
