QM Gallery ALRIWAQ

Art to spark debate

This venue in front of MIA Park hosts exhibitions that get people talking.

With a diverse schedule of exhibitions and a vast space, Al Riwaq will always surprise you. The space also hosts temporary exhibitions by museums in our network that are yet to open.

Recent hits

Shows from the past few years include:

X-Ray Fashion (2019)

The seven scenes of the film consist of 360-degree live-action footage that imparts a stunning, photo-realistic atmosphere. 

Here There (2015)

Exploring the environmental, cultural and social experiences of life in Qatar and Brazil through the eyes of each country’s most promising and talented young artists, the exhibition was part of the Qatar-Brazil 2014 Year of Culture and included work from 42 Qatari and Brazilian artists.

Relics by Damien Hirst (2013)

Through a public debate and city-wide marketing, local audiences were invited to give personal reactions to infamous pieces.

Ego, by Takashi Murakami (2012)

With work in commercial fields like fashion and merchandise, he blurs the lines between high and low art. Cartoon-like explosions of colour speak to young and old, connoisseur and amateur alike.

Mal Lawal (2012)

This featured works by Qatari artists and objects from local collections, personally displayed by residents.

We try to learn who our audience is, where we can do better, and how we can reach even more people
