Qatar Mirror

2 November 2014 – 1 January 2015

A joint show with Doha-based artist Michael Perrone at the Student Centre Gallery, Education city.

Qatar Mirror aimed to stimulate local and national dialogue regarding the importance of the preservation of traditions embodied in the urban landscape and social fabric, alongside the desire for modernisation and economic growth. The artists re-examined conventional drawing and painting techniques in documenting the evolution of the city, and reflected on preserved locations, places in transition, and imagined futures. The exhibition was the culmination of a one-year faculty research grant from Virginia Commonwealth University Qatar (VCUQ).
