Three famous female artists are giving a public talk in Doha

Qatar Museums is hosting a public art talk which will feature three renowned artists at the National Museum of Qatar.

On Wednesday October 30, you can connect with inspiring works of art as Lubna Chowdhary, Susan Hefuna and Shirazeh Houshiary come together to explore their artistic practice and discuss the potential of art in the public realm.

The talk which takes place at 7pm will be moderated by QM senior curator Laura Barlow and will offer a glimpse into the contexts that have shaped these artists’ works to date.

Lubna Chowdhary is a sculptor, born in Tanzania, who specialises in ceramics focusing on civic, communal environments. Her work is meant to spark conversation among viewers regarding the environments in which they inhabit.

Susan Hefuna is an interdisciplinary artist exploring identity, gender and the self in society. Born in Germany with Egyptian roots, she incorporates her multi-faceted background into her work. The art she produces commonly references the Mashrabiya screen and the history of Islamic art and architecture.

Shirazeh Houshiary is an Iranian artist with a varied artistic background, including painting, installation, architectural projects and animation. Her art focuses on changing the natural way that viewers see things, achieving this by creating elusive environments and seemingly alive sculptural forms.

The discussion will be introduced by Abdulrahman Al Ishaq, head of Public Art, as part of the ongoing series Public Art Talks, organised by the Public Art department at QM.
Free. Oct 30, 7pm-onwards. National Museum of Qatar,
