Description

Exhibition

Opening reception on Wednesday, September 11 at 6:00pm.

This event is free and open to public. The Gallery is closed on Fridays.

A guided tour of the exhibition in presence of curators and two artists will happen on Thursday, September 12 at 12:30pm. This is an initiative of the Qatar Foundation Art Trail Tour.

“Highlights 2012-2019” is the first retrospective of Fanoon Center For Printmedia Research’s growing collection of international and regional artists including Bryan Graf, Bryan Jabs, Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau, Diyan Achjadi, Fares Cachoux, Jenny Schmid, John D. Freyer, Katie Vida, Koichi Yamamoto, Las Hermanas Iglesias, Mary Laube, Michael Perrone, Ranjani Shettar, Sean Kuhnke, Shahzia Sikander, Shaurya Kumar, Sonya Clark, Susan Chrysler White and Trenton Doyle Hancock.

Fanoon was launched in 2012 by the Painting + Printmaking Department at VCUarts Qatar, making it the first print publishing program of its kind in the Middle East. The program collaborates with local, regional, and international artists to explore the role of print in contemporary culture. The exhibition aims to expand the possibilities of print in the 21st century by selecting artists who can engage with printmaking from a variety of perspectives, disciplines and approaches.

The exhibition is accompanied with a robust program of workshops, panels, and events as well as a catalogue of the full collection.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

VCUarts Qatar is located inside Education City, Al-Rayyan, to the north-west of Doha. Qatar Foundation (QF) headquarters, known to most taxi drivers in Qatar, is located on the same campus.

From inside Education City...

There is a large car park adjacent to the VCUarts Qatar building.

VCUarts Qatar Car Park (1 min walk from main entrance)

Enter Education City using Gate 2. After the security gate, turn right at the first mini-roundabout (beside the large LED screen) and go straight for a short distance. Then take the first left, and once again take the first left. You will see a football field and a car park.

After parking your car, you can enter the VCUarts Qatar building from the main entrance which is on the lefthand side if you are facing towards the front of the building.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
