Chinese artist Ai Weiwei visits Qatar

 

Well known Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is visiting Qatar this week to experience the country’s flourishing arts and culture scene. Qatar Museum is committed to bring established creative artists to the country to inspire generations of indigenous talent. He will visits most museums and art institutions and he will explore many of then country’s notable and recognisable public art projects, including the striking sculpture East-West / West -East by Richard Serra, located in Zekreet.


He will also as part of the visit be giving a public talk, open to all to attend at the Museum of Islamic Art, alongside Swiss businessman, diplomat and art collector Uli Sigg. Sounds like he will soon add something to the public art scene in Qatar and we can only look forward to what that will be. I ma sure he will be an inspiration to many young and aspiring artists during his stay.
