‘Confluence: photographic based works from the Contemporary Middle East’ brings together for the first time in Qatar the work of Atfal Ahdath, George Awde, and Ali Cherri.

The photograph is part of everyday life around the world and is used as a medium to preserve fleeting moments of the mundane, the personal, and the intimate, as well as the monumental, the global and the public. This exhibition of contemporary photography and video installation from across the Middle East demonstrates this thematic diversity. Beyond this, however, it also explores the medium itself – the richness of possibilities, directions and journeys that are open to the artist who uses photography in its broadest sense as a starting point or confluence in his/her work.

Opening reception and panel discussion with George Awde, Vartan Avakian and Ali Cherri (artists), Caitlin Doherty (curator) and Mayssa Fattouh (moderator).

Exhibition open daily from 9am to 5pm (closed Fridays).
