Jassim Zaini: Representation and Abstraction, curated by Fatma Mostafawi (Curator, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha), will present a focused view of the works of a pioneering Qatari modernist. The exhibition explores Zaini’s artistic vision and examines two formal artistic directions adopted by the artist during different and overlapping periods of his artistic career. The works on show are important reflections of a fundamental era in the history of Qatar as they capture the social, cultural and economic transformations brought about by the exploitation of oil and the formation of nation state.
