Qatar Museums Announces Fall's Unprecedented Cultural Developments

In the fall of 2022, Qatar Museums (QM) will launch a broad range of cultural initiatives that will solidify the country's status as a premier center of arts and culture in the region and around the world.

An iconic landmark in the center of Doha, the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA), created by Pritzker Prize-winning architect I M Pei, will reopen in October as the program's focal point. To engage both domestic and foreign audiences, the MIA will exhibit its collection using entirely fresh thematic interpretations. There will be a brand-new family trail included.

More than 40 new and commissioned public artworks will be installed by fall 2022 throughout Doha and the country in a wide variety of social spaces, including gardens and malls, educational and athletic facilities, Hamad International Airport, and Qatar Rail stations, as well as some stadiums that will host World Cup matches, as part of Qatar Museums' preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The Qatar-Menasa 2022 Year of Culture program is a large element of the QM exhibitions scheduled for the fall of 2022. This annual program of bilateral exchange to honor the cultures of twenty-two nations in the Menasa region has been significantly increased by QM in this World Cup year.

Among the exhibitions are: * Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art; Part of Qatar-Menasa 2022 Year of Culture; Sophia al-Maria: Invisible Labors, Daydream treatment; September 16–January 21, 2023.

For the Qatari American artist's first major, multi-part museum exhibition in the Middle East, the exhibition combines old and new pieces.

The exhibition No Condition is Permanent is designed as a contemplative place devoted to the artist Taysir Batniji and is presented within a worldwide framework of social unpredictability and the vulnerability of historical narratives. The exhibition, which includes productions and replicas of his artwork produced between 1997 and 2022, is a survey that places work in dialogue.

In the exhibition, 25 more AIR graduates will be highlighted. They will present works in a range of media, such as painting, sculpture, and new media, and explore various viewpoints and reflections to reveal personal, cultural, and international concepts. The pieces will be on exhibit in conversation with one another, emphasizing storytelling components.

Football in the World; 3-2-1 October 1–April 1, 2023; Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum

This year's FIFA World Cup will be staged in Qatar, marking the first time the region's largest football competition has been held there. The World of Football display at the Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum honors this momentous milestone. It is shown in two halves, just like a football game. The first half, titled "Football for All, All for Football," explores the beautiful game's appeal to people all across the world, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background.

The second half, titled "The Road to Doha," chronicles the arduous road to Qatar 2022, from the inaugural FIFA World Cup matches in Uruguay in 1930 to the championship game on December 18 at Lusail Stadium. In addition to getting a behind-the-scenes look at Qatar's successful campaign to host the World Cup, visitors to the exhibition may learn about the country's future aspirations.

The last portion of the exhibition, FIFA Making Memories, will expand as more artifacts and objects are added to celebrate and document historic moments as teams create new World Cup history in Qatar in 2022. The National Football Museum (UK), Musée National du Sport (France), FIFA Museum, Qatar Football Association, and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy all support the exhibition.
