W Doha Hotel & Residences, the first luxury lifestyle hotel in Qatar, is proud to host works of the International Artists of Doha (IAD) Group at its vibrant Art 29 gallery. The exhibition titled ‘Emotions’ will open to public on March 24th at 6pm with a grand reception and will run until April 9th from 9.00am to 7.00pm.

The International Artists of Doha (IAD) Group is a non-profit organisation for 30 national and international artists living and working in Doha, formed in 2011 by two Dutch artists. The group provides its members with a platform for sharing experiences and interacting with other artists from around the globe as well as organising group workshops and local community initiatives.

Once a year, IAD showcases its members’ artworks to the public by organizing an exhibition accompanied by workshops and live paintings. This year, the group has chosen W Doha’s Art 29 outstanding art destination to feature the artworks of 26 artists stemming from different countries, cultural backgrounds and professions. The exhibition titled ‘Emotions’ undertakes the journey into the inner world of us. Each artist interprets the reflections, energies and feelings that merge the inside and outside worlds. As part of the exhibition, IAD is also organizing daily interactive workshops in the form of live paintings where local art students and amateurs can explore the artists’ techniques ranging from cubism to knife painting, silk painting, face portraits, watercolours and to acrylic painting.

Art 29 has been established to inspire and nurture creativity by showcasing the works of emerging local, regional and international artists. The gallery has previously featured prominent Qatari names including Ahmed Bin Majed Al Maadheed, the artist behind the iconic “Tamim-al-Majid” portrait, Abdulwahed Al-Mawlawi, known for documenting local artistic expression from the late 1990s to 2002, Lulu M who is a self-taught artist recognised for her minimalist abstract compositions and Fahad Al Obaidly regularly addressing issues of “identity crisis” in his work. The gallery also played host to the photography works of students at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar and the “Currents” exhibit by Emergeast, the first online art gallery that brings together emerging Middle Eastern artists and young collectors under one umbrella.
