The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) is inviting vintage car owners and collectors to showcase their collections at the Mal Lawal 3 exhibition. Under the patronage of Qatar Museums’ (QM) Chairperson, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, and in collaboration with Mawater Center, the highly anticipated exhibition is set to take place in the last quarter of 2020 at NMoQ.

Mal Lawal, meaning “from the old days”, is an exhibition that showcases collections owned by private collectors from Qatar. Items presented in the exhibition may include manuscripts, weapons, Islamic collections, maps, coins, ethnographic and heritage items, jewellery, clothing, accessories and cars.

Interested car collectors are invited to submit a portfolio by the end of July 2020 which includes:

- A short description of the selected car(s).

- A few images of or related to the car(s).

Sheikha Amna bint Abdulaziz bin Jassim Al Thani, Director of the National Museum of Qatar, said, “Mal Lawal 3, which will be hosted at the National Museum of Qatar, will exhibit and reveal a unique insight into private collectors and the stories their collections carry. Vintage cars are amongst several types of collections that this Mal Lawal exhibition will feature.”

Salim Saeed Al Mohannadi, Mawater Center Director said: “We thank the National Museum of Qatar for this opportunity and constructive cooperation, through which we document the history of the cars of the people of Qatar. This is the fruit of the cooperation agreement for organizing Mawater exhibitions by documenting the history of cars in Qatar.”

Mal Lawal 3 is the only event of its kind in the region and acts as a platform that brings together private collectors, helping support and further establish the practice of collecting in Qatar. The collections that will be showcased in 2020 will present the personal stories of the collectors and highlight their passion for art, culture and heritage.
