Fragments: An Exhibition by Mahmoud Obaidi
From 17 October 2016 to 30 January 2017
In this exhibition, Mahmoud Obaidi retraces the 'organised chaos' that led to the destruction of Iraq, and presents a response to witnessing the city of Baghdad fall piece by piece. In his work, Obaidi recreates what has been stolen or destroyed to try to piece the city back together again. The exhibition shows how Obaidi is grappling with the destruction of an 7,000-year-old civilisation, which has been laid waste in less than a fraction of that time.
QM Gallery Katara is open daily, except Sundays
- Monday to Thursday 10am to 8pm
- Friday 3pm to 9pm
- Saturday 10am to 8pm
