On the Move

27 October 2022 - 7 January 2023

On the Move cover

The exhibition explores the lives of nomadic and semi-nomadic pastoralists across three distinct regions: Central Sahara, Qatar and Mongolia and how these groups created and maintained rich and meaningful social lives while producing complex and beautiful cultural forms in challenging environments.

It features a rich selection of objects, historical images and archival footage from the collections of the National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) and other Qatar Museums collections, along with loans from international museums such as the National Museum of Mongolia, Musée du Quai Branly and the Weltmuseum Vienna.

The exhibition is curated by Professor Lila Abu-Lughod (Columbia University); Tania Al Majid (NMoQ); Faisal Al Naimi (Qatar Museums); Dr Haya Al Thani (NMoQ); Dr Anja Fischer (University of Vienna); and Dr Elizabeth Turk (University of Cambridge).
