Public art

Culture everywhere

Our public art brings dialogue to the streets and buildings of Doha on a huge scale with high impact and mass appeal. From striking sculptures and specially commissioned photography, our public art pieces are immersive, informal and interactive.

They are found in public spaces, like the Hamad International Airport, Qatar National Convention Centre, Salwa Road tunnels and even Zikreet. They interrupt people as they go about their daily lives and ask them to think again. Collectively, they have a powerful and ambient presence in the city.

Telling our story

Public art piques interest and gets people talking. The installations speak to people who could become cultural producers, creative practitioners and museum professionals in years to come.

They often attract international press attention, projecting a message about the diversity and spirit of our emerging cultural landscape. They help us form connections across continents. They are for everyone in Qatar, for now, and for future generations.

Through displaying various forms of art in public space, we aim to inspire local talent and establish an organic connection between art and the local community

Public Art is an abstract reflection of a society, and as society evolves, so does its perception. We instigate dialog through our Public Art and encourage both artists and audiences to engage in an enriching exchange.

What We're Doing


JEDARIART brings together artists to add vibrancy and meaning to the walls across the city through murals and street art.


The installation of César's "Pouce" in Souq Waqif continues the program of installations by major artists at unexpected locations throughout Qatar.


Liam Gillick’s "Folded Extracted Personified" is a large-scale interactive work installed throughout MIA Park consisting of multiple unique “head-in-the-hole” panels.


We commission and invite artists to create temporary public art that can respond to certain ongoing events and encourage dialogue amongst the community.
