“Messages From 2030″ invites a group of Doha-based artists to reimagine the future of cultural expression through art using digital tools. The exhibition aims to present a collection of artworks that honour the visionaries who laid the foundation of modern Qatar, while exploring futuristic possibilities.

The artists have applied their creative skills and innovative use of design approaches to craft both 2D and 3D works, forming an imagined communication from the not-too-distant future of 2030. The final artwork serves a dual purpose: acting as a communication about Qatar’s evolving identity, inspiring audiences to contemplate how their world has changed, while also paying homage to the nation’s architect’s.

Fourteen Qatari-based Arab artists explore their vision of the future in 2030, conveying the evolution of Qatar’s cultural identity and growth to the nation’s founders. “Messages from 2030” invites audiences to use their imagination while discovering how digital tools can be employed to create beautiful art with deeper meaning.
