Doha 08th May 2014: Â Qatari artists display works inspired by Richard Serra at Creation Generation Project, which was launched last week by Qatar Museums Authority (QMA).
The project is an initiative running alongside the Richard Serra exhibition in Qatar. Richard Serra is one of the most famous contemporary sculptors in the world. The exhibition organized by QMA in Doha is Serraâ€™s first Middle East solo show. It brings together Serraâ€™s sculptures and drawings from different periods.
The experience with the Creation Generation Project is giving me solid grounds in my field. Itâ€™s enabling me to see peopleâ€™s different perspectives that will add to my artistic experience and to the things I create, said cartoonist Abdulaziz Yousef.
I have been inspired by Richard Serraâ€™s work when I first saw it. I look at art now from a different and deeper perspective. As artists, we both have our own way of creativity but I will try my best to learn more from Serraâ€™s techniques, said Khalifa Ghaith Al-Kuwari who specializes in sword making.
The project will feature art works of Amira Fareed, Abdulaziz Alajail, Haya al-Thani and Mohamed Abdullah al-Dossari in the following weeks.
The exhibition being held at QMA Gallery at Katara and at Al Riwaq Doha exhibitionÂ space will run until 6th July.
