If you're curious about what will be the fate of the attention-grabbing and thought-provoking [RE]ACTION exhibition at the Katara Building 19 Gallery 1 after the sixth edition of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival concludes today (December 3), then you've come to right place!
Dubbed as a community art event as part of the Ajyal 2018 programme, the special showcase of works by 12 filmmakers and artists from the country is extended until the 31st of December by public demand and also in order to shed more light to the upcoming Qatar National Day 2018 festivities on December 18, according to its organizers.
Highlighting the power of art in driving dialogue and on reflecting on the community’s response to events that shape our world, [RE]ACTION is described as a creative interpretation of the nation’s spirit of resilience and adaptability to respond to even the most testing challenges.
The title of the art showcase draws from the definition of the word reaction, which means something must be done, felt, or thought in response to a situation or event. All works on display were created with thought-provoking, interactive elements that will challenge audiences as it had the artists’ who created them.
For many spectators, the interactive art showcase offered many a cathartic moment as they were reminded of the spirit of solidarity that led the nation to rise above adversity, a noticeable similarity from last year's art exhibit 'Le Blockade'.
Artworks include explorations on freedom of speech and the Jamal Khoshaggi incident by Ghada Al Khater and Abdulaziz Yousef, respectively.
Besides them, artists including Abdulaziz Yousef, May Al Mannai, Waheed Khan, Ammar Al Qammash, Rashid Al Kuwari, Khalifa Al Thani, Kholood Al Ali, Ghada Al Khater and Fatma Mousa are also part of the [RE]ACTION line-up.
Free for public viewing, [RE]ACTION is open from 10 AM till 10 PM daily.
