Doha Art Map exhibition project is conceived as a platform for research around art production and debate taking place within Mathaf Project Space’s 13th edition. The Museum invites artists, curators, aspiring curators and creative community to continue discussions around the contemporary art scene in Doha. Bringing together filmmakers and artists, the open forum will survey film and performance art practices in Doha and discuss their role in shaping society.

Mathaf invites three Qatari directors—Jassim Al Romaihi, Majid Al-Remaihi, Khalifa Al-Marri --from Doha Film Institute to participate in Project Space 13: Doha Art Map, introduced by Curator Laura Barlow and moderated by Curator Hessa Al Romaihi. The topic will touch base on how film can portray art through a lens, how each of the young Qatari directors managed to paint their own imaginations and place them on a screen. The conversation will present the directors perspectives on the medium of film and its role to develop creative and critical thinking?  

Directors: Jassim Al Romaihi, Majid Al-Remaihi, Khalifa Al-Marri
