This is the Qatari American artist’s first large-scale museum exhibition in the Middle East. For this multimedia exhibition, Al-Maria (b. 1983) – who coined the term ‘Gulf Futurism’ – invites various artists, curators, scholars, and communities into a dialogue around histories, dreams, futures, and the Gulf’s relation to the surrounding regions.
