About the Exhibition:

‘Syria Matters’ takes as its subject the extraordinary cultural heritage of Syria, illuminating Syria’s key role in the artistic and intellectual history of the world. This exhibition brings to life the multifaceted layers of Syria’s architectural and cultural history going as far back as the country’s early pre-Islamic past and explores its many contributions to world history.

The exhibition, co-curated by MIA Director Dr Julia Gonnella and Rania Abdellatif, drew on MIA’s own spectacular collection, shown alongside loans from other world-renowned international museums, including the Louvre in Paris, the Museum of Ancient Near Eastern Art in Berlin, the Berlin State Library, other significant Qatar Museums (QM) collections such as the Orientalist Collection, as well as the Qatar National Library and Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Museum.
