AMCA Conference at Mathaf in Doha, Qatar

19 Dec 2010

I gave a talk, "Beyond the Nation: M. F. Husain in Qatar," at the first annual conference of the Association for Modern and Contemporary Art of the Arab World, Iran, and Turkey, in collaboration with Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha, Qatar, December 16-17, 2010.

Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art will formally open on December 30 of this year. The first public museum of its kind, the 6000 works were originally collected by Sheikh Hassan. The museum was created as part of the Qatar Foundation.

The museum has attracted similar attention to that garnered by contemporary art in India. For details, see http://articles.cnn.com/2010-12-09/world/qatar.mathaf.art_1_art-scene-mo...
