  • Culture

An eclectic medley of artworks created by 13 Doha-based contemporary artists are on show at a virtual exhibition launched yesterday by Al Markhiya Gallery for the eighth edition of its highly successful ’50×50 exhibition.

Viewable via Al Markhiya Gallery’s IG TV channel until September 12, the show takes visitors on a virtual tour of the works of Aisha Al Fadhala, Alaa Bata, Ameera Alaji, Hayfaa Al Khuzai, Khalid Al Fahad, Maryam Al Homaid, May Al Mannai, Noor Abuissa, Noor Al Thani, Rasha  Alem, Shaha Al Khulaifi, Talal Al Qasemi, Thamer Al Dossari.

For this group exhibition, each of the artists created three artworks, all of which are 50cm by 50cm in size, providing art collectors affordable and compact art pieces.

Despite the fact they are identical in size, the pieces exhibit diversity in the media used, — from acrylic, ink, and print to digital art, pottery and mixed media —  as well as in the artists’ styles and subjects.

This is the second ’50×50 exhibition which is presented in virtual format following the success of its seventh edition in June and July which put the spotlight on works by 14 artists, including Ahmed Al Haddad, Ahmed Sultan, Aisha Al Sowaidi, Ali Al Naama, Hadeer Omar, Khalifa Al Marri, Lina Al Aali, Manar Al Muftah, Maryam Al Mousa, Moza Al Kuwari, Mubarak Al Malik, Noor Qussini, Wurood Azzam and Zeina Abbara.

Currently running on Al Markhiya Gallery’s Artsy page is ‘Radiant Darkness exhibition featuring paintings by Doha-based Iraqi artist Salem Mathkour.

Other online exhibitions presented by Al Markhiya recently included ‘Reformat, featuring works by Algerian artist Hamza Bounoua, ‘Social Distancing which displayed works by Qatari artist Mubarak Al Thani, ‘Heroes of the Experiment by Palestinian artist Hayyan Monawar and ‘Quarantine Diaries by Qatari artist Sara Al Buainain.

Art lovers who wish to personally visit Al Markhiya Gallery at the Fire Station still have until August 20 to  view the works on display at the gallery’s inaugural ‘2030 exhibition featuring Qatari artists Abeer Al Kuwari, Ahmed Nouh, Mohammed Atiq, Khalifa Al Thani, Hassan Manasrah, Yasser Al Mulla, Nassar Al Attiyah, Mohammed Al Hamadi, and Maryam Faraj Al Suwaidi.
