Following the success of last year’s Shared Glass Exhibition, Katara proudly presents the opening of this new exhibition on Thursday.

Mabkhara is a traditional Arab incense burner, an authentic object typically used in daily domestic activities in the Arab world. There are many unique and exquisite shapes and designs. The exhibition will present the new objects alongside their traditional prototypes from the region, illustrating the process of learning and highlighting the dialectic between continuity and innovation.

Constantin Boym: Learning from Mabkhara will open at 7 pm at Gallery 2, Building 13 at Katara on 8 November and will run until 1 December 2012. For further information visit their website.
