It introduces the vision and the definition of the museum, conceived by Catherine Grenier, as well as the architecture by the studio Elemental, led by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Alejandro Aravena. Due to open in 2030, the Museum will transform an industrial flour mill on the Corniche. It will include a creative village and a garden by the landscape architect Günther Vogt. The Art Mill Museum will house an exceptional and completely international collection constituted over the last 40 years with multidisciplinary works of great diversity, dating from 1850 to the present.

The exhibition will present the vision of the museum, the architectural project and the signature garden. To reflect the transformation of the site and to demonstrate how the Art Mill Museum will be a place for contemporary creativity, artists have been commissioned to create films and photographs establishing parallels between the former flour mill and the future museum. The exhibition will take place in two locations in Doha: the site of the flour mill plant that will later welcome the new construction and the recently restored Al Najada Heritage House #15.

The exhibition is curated by Aurélien Lemonier, Art Mill Museum Curator of Architecture, Design and Gardens, and Maryam Al Thani, Curator, Exhibitions Department, Qatar Museums.
