Description

Since many of the works of public art in Qatar are inspired by the cultural and natural heritage of the country, this discussion will center on revealing and discussing those connections. Questions of how an artwork fits into a location/environment and how the surroundings interact with it will also be explored. Artists will bring into the conversation examples from Qatar and abroad in order to generate broader discussion of the role of public art in preserving and critically exploring cultural heritage.
