Arab Museum of Modern Art | EDUCATION CITY | COM

I was just browsing the website of HH Sheika Moza, and I read a section about the Arab Museum of Modern Art, which will open within three years.

Quote:
Arab Museum for Modern Art

The Arab Museum for Modern Art will emphasise a remarkable collection of contemporary art


Starting a collection by Sheikh Hassan Bin Mohammed Al-Thani, the museum's items were assembled ten years ago. Her Highness Sheikha Mozah sponsored the project which is part of the Qatar Foundation. It will be among Education City's facilities and will occupy a specifically -designed building in Doha. The museum will be accessible to the public as well as art specialists, where a large collection of modern art such as paintings, sculptures, calligraphy and photography will be displayed.
It will also provide an overview of the different contemporary artistic genres in the Arab world, in order to reveal links between different Arab societies, gathering the works of the Maghreb Arabs of north-west Africa artists alongside those of the Mashriq eastern Arabs.

Researchers, artists, art historians, students and local residents can access the museum which will stimulate creativity, educate about Arab culture, and promote art appreciation. Once housed in its permanent location, the museum will become an important tourist attraction to Qatar, in addition to being a center of excellence.

The collection will comprise more than 5,000 paintings, showing the development of plastic arts by renowned artists from the Arab world.

A special section will feature examples of Arabic calligraphy, the distinctive and exquisite art form which has influenced many contemporary Arab art forms. It ranges from Qur'anic manuscripts of early Islamic centuries to modern calligraphy.

More than 700 pieces of antiques, sculptures, metalwork and ceramics, will reveal the influence of ancient civilizations on contemporary Arab art, with some dating to 5,000 years. The collection will represent the civilizations of Mesopotamia, Arabia, Greater Syria, Egypt and other areas.

Other sections include sculptures, graphics, photography and applied arts.

The museum is scheduled to open once the new building is completed within the next three years.
No pictures were posted but I'll do a web search to see if their is anything about it.

No!! I haven't heard of it! But I love what Qatar is doing.. building traditions and cultures for the country is a great step to become a tourist place! I believe Qatar is walking on the right path!

If I hear anything, I'll report!
