VCUQatar Gallery Presents ‘Confluence:Photographic-based Work from the Contemporary Middle East’
The Gallery at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar is pleased to present ‘Confluence: Photographic-based Work from the Contemporary Middle East,’ an exhibition that brings together for the first time in Qatar the work of Atfal Ahdath, George Awde and Ali Cherri.
The exhibition is scheduled from 5 November to 24 December 2014 with an opening reception and panel discussion on Wednesday, 5 November at 6:00 pm at the Gallery at VCUQatar. The event is open to the public.
The photograph is part of everyday life around the world and is used as a medium to preserve fleeting moments of the mundane, the personal, and the intimate, as well as the monumental, the global and the public.
This exhibition of contemporary photography and video installation from across the Middle East demonstrates this thematic diversity. Beyond this, however, it also explores the medium itself – the richness of possibilities, directions and journeys that are open to the artist who uses photography in its broadest sense as a starting point or confluence in his/her work.
