Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art is a QMA museum, led by H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
Initiated by H.E. Sheikh Hassan bin Mohamed bin Ali Al Thani, with around 7,000 works gathered over the past 25 years from the Arab, Asian, African and Western regions, the collection represents the major artistic trends and sites of production. Mathaf showcases major exhibitions, both historical and experimental, and large scale education programs. Mathaf opened in 2010 in Doha’s Education City. Spanning the 1840s through the present, the museum’s permanent collection offers a rare comprehensive overview of modern and contemporary art.
Under the direction of Abdellah Karroum since 2013, the museum launches a pioneering series of new projects including Mathaf Curatorial Dialogues and Mathaf Project Space encourages research and scholarship, offers programs that engage the local and international community and contributes to the cultural landscape in Qatar, with a special interest in developing transnational relations with the Gulf region and beyond.
