Two art exhibitions to visit in Doha this weekend

Doha Fire Station
If you’re looking for a deep, contemplative and immersive art exhibit, check out Sara Al Obaidly’s What Remains at Doha Fire Station. 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. It leads us to reflect on what we will leave behind once we have fully exploited Earth’s natural resources in the name of progress.

VCUarts Qatar
If you’re a printmaking enthusiast, head over to the VCUarts Gallery for Fanoon: Highlights 2012-2019. This exhibition will focus on the first seven years of the Fanoon Center for Printmedia Research. The Fanoon Center, which is part of the Painting and Printmaking department at VCUarts Qatar, collaborates with local, regional, and international artists to explore the role of print in contemporary culture. The exhibition will include selected works by several of the Fanoon Center’s renowned visiting artists who created original print works during their stays. There are several art tours and workshops also taking place.
