Qatar Museums will hold an exhibition on 27 October at the Qatar National Museum that will highlight the rich cultural heritage of nomads in the middle of the Sahara Desert, Arabian Middle East, and Mongolia.

The exhibition comes within a series of cultural initiatives devised by Qatar Museums in 2022 and within the framework of assuring Qatar's prestige as a prominent artistic and cultural destination at the regional and international levels.

The gallery, which is set to run till 14 January 2023, reviews the lives of nomads and semi-nomads in three regions- the Sahara, Qatar and Mongolia as well as those groups' endeavours to establish and preserve significant and rich social lives in addition to the formation of deep and beautiful cultural stereotypes in an environment full of challenges.

The exhibition will display a rich collection of artefacts and historical photos from the Qatar National Museum and other museums. It will also include collections borrowed from international museums including the National Museum of Mongolia, The Du Quai Branly Museum in France, and the Vienna Globe Museum.

Aside from this exhibition, the Pipilotti Rist Your Brain to me, My Brain to You Gallery will continue at the Qatar National Museum till 20 December 2022, to enable FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 fans to enjoy the first-of-its-kind exhibition for the renowned Swiss artist in the Middle East.

The exhibition, which is held in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and the Hamad Medical Institution, depends mainly on the technology of pixels comprising 12000 LED light bulbs installed across the exhibition showroom. The bulbs are programmed to light in coordination with a soundtrack depicting in the visitors' imagination the natural scenes in Qatar.

The exhibition invites the visitors to delve into a journey of self-discovery via a sensational, contemplative and astonishing experience and also symbolizes humanity's collective unconsciousness and the capacity of the human mind.
