Things to do in Doha: Check out this new art exhibition

Qatari interdisciplinary artist Sara Al Obaidly has a new exhibition at the Doha Fire Station and it’s one to check out this weekend.

What Remains is a self-initiated project born out of her journey across the island of Madagascar in 2016.

Travelling from the capital Antananarivo to the west coast and ending her trip in Belo Sur Mer, Al Obaidly covered over 800km by land, river and sea.

This previously unseen exhibition combines photographic works, sound design, film and installation.

The exhibition is open to the public from September 25 until October 12.

What Remains is an exploration of what mankind will leave behind once we have fully exploited Earth’s natural resources in the name of progress.

The work asks profound questions about human civilisation’s impact on the environment.

Al Obaidly just returned from her three-month residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York, USA.

She hopes to initiate dialogue with a serious message and a call to action, encouraging visitors to self-reflect.

The exhibition will hopefully get us to contemplate and re-evaluate our relationships with the environment and think hard about the footprints we’re leaving behind.
Free. Open Sat-Thu 9am-7pm; Fri 9-11.30am, 1.30pm-7pm. Doha Fire Station, near Civil Defense Roundabout (4422 4222).
