Mathaf: Jassim Zaini, Representation, and Abstraction

Wednesday 17 October 2018 – Saturday 16 February 2019, 09.00AM – 07.00PM Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Education City, Doha, Qatar

This exhibition, curated by Fatma Mostafawi, will present a focused view of the works of a pioneering Qatari modernist. The exhibition explores Zaini’s artistic vision and examines two formal artistic directions adopted by the artist during different and overlapping periods of his artistic career. The works on show are important reflections of a fundamental era in the history of Qatar as they capture the social, cultural, and economic transformations brought about by the exploitation of oil and the formation of nation state.
