Qatar Museums (QM) will host the third annual ‘Artist in Residence’ exhibition at the Fire Station from July 17 to October 1. Presented as a dialogue between art and artist, the exhibition will showcase the works of some of the most promising young artists in Qatar. This year’s edition, titled ‘Dual Inspirations,’ 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 QM 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.
