Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You is an invitation for people of all ages to go on an immersive journey of self-discovery through a multi-sensory experience that inspires introspection and awe. The large-scale site-specific installation by internationally-renowned Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist is the artist’s first in the Middle East.

Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You symbolizes humanity’s collective unconscious and the power of the mind. A key feature of the installation is the “pixels” that comprise 12,000 LED lights strung on cables throughout the gallery for visitors to navigate. Representing neurons, constantly firing and communicating with each other, the pulsing resin-encased bulbs have been programmed in choreography with a soundscape and video installation featuring abstract footage of Qatar’s landscapes.

As they make their way through the exhibit, visitors are encouraged to turn off their personal devices and prepare to experience the journey fully, shifting their focus towards activating different senses.


  • Admission to the exhibition is FREE, but tickets must be reserved online before your visit.

Note: This exhibition contains flashing lights that may cause discomfort and/or trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy and other conditions with sensitivity to light.
