Le Méridien City Center Doha, in collaboration with Qonexión, announced an open call for Qatar-based artists to register their interest and be part of the ‘Arrival Artwork’ project to curate and implement a permanent art installation at the hotel’s main lobby.

The Arrival Artwork experience starts from the first moment a guest arrives at Le Méridien City Center, Doha where they are welcomed by a high-impact art installation.

Le Meridien hotels worldwide feature art as an essential part of the brand’s DNA. To this end, the Arrival Artwork is an important component in the communication of the brand’s passion for the arts. Within the first moments of arrival, the guest should encounter a high-impact art piece that is their threshold of entry into Le Méridien space and Le Méridien mindset.

Arrival Artwork competition

The competition is open to Qatar-based artists, art students (18 years and older), and citizens or residents of Qatar. Application is open until 31 March.

Applications will be reviewed and shortlisted by a jury from Le Méridien City Center Doha, Le Meridien brand Qonexión and prominent art personalities in Qatar. Shortlisted artists will be invited to Le Méridien City Center, Doha for a site visit, presentation and project inspiration.

The selected artist will receive QAR10,000 for the art production and installation in the lobby. The artist’s name including the ‘art story’ will be part of the permanent installation, making the artist and their work part of an international lifestyle brand known for its affinity to art and culture.

The art piece visuals and artist details will also be featured in the Global Le Meridien Digital Platforms represented as the Arrival Artwork at Le Meridien City Center, Doha.
