Presented as a dialogue between art and artist, the exhibition will showcase the works of some of the most promising young artists in Qatar.
Titled Dual Inspirations, this year’s exhibition is presented as a conversation between two artists sharing their perspectives on the same topic. The exhibition will provide visitors with a thorough understanding of what the 18 artists have experienced during their residency and the ways in which it has enriched their craft.
Simultaneously, Contrapuntal: Artist in Residence Inspired by Modern Arab Art, examines how the past can be studied and used to explore and express contemporary culture. The exhibition features selected artworks from Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art that were used as an inspiration by some of the Fire Station’s artists in residency.
Under the visionary guidance of Qatar Museum Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Fire Station has become the hub for Doha’s flourishing art scene in recent years.
