Sujoud: Modern Prayer Rug Design Exhibition

Saturday 12 January 2019 – Friday 15 February 2019, 06.30PM – 10.00PM EC Mosque Gallery , Education City Mosque, Georgetown Access Rd, Ar-Rayyan, Qatar

This exhibition features different prayer carpet designs by local designers and VCUarts Qatar students, giving the public a chance to look at prayer rugs differently. The exhibition includes the work of six finalists who entered the prayer rug design competition organized last year by The Materials Library at Virginia Commonwealth University under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, along with the work of VCUarts Qatar MFA students as part of a five-day workshop in the Netherlands in 2017.

The objective is to show the importance of modernizing the prayer carpet design to reflect the language of our time, in the same way that the material changed throughout history according to the socio-cultural changes of Islamic societies.
