Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha has officially re-opened its doors for the Fall season following a major update of its permanent collection galleries. Titled Mathaf Collection, Summary, Part 2, the new interpretation of the museum’s extensive collection brings together landmark artists and pivotal works that redefine modern and contemporary art practices and historical narratives.



Presented by Qatar Museums under the leadership of its Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the rehanging highlights new pieces that explore major themes of aesthetics and politics of change and progress in a pan-regional context, including the development and influence of the oil industry, the birth of new urban centres and cities, and aspirations of progress in a global, hyper digitalised and networked era.
