Qatar Museums (QM) along with Hamad International Airport (HIA) recently announced the unveiling of a number of new public art installations by both Qatari and international artists at the airport.

QM has installed two new permanent pieces which are now on display for passengers and visitors – ‘Arctic Nurseries of El Dorado’ by British artist Marc Quinn, and ‘Untitled’ by Italian artist Rudolf Stingel.

In addition, an unconventional sculpture of the desert horse by acclaimed Qatari artist Ali Hassan is set to be installed in HIA in the first quarter of 2016. This will be Hassan’s third piece to go on show at the airport.

The new pieces will join the growing collection of sculptures and images by Qatari and international artists at the airport, including works by four Qatari artists: Amal Al Raban, Ali Hassan, Mubarak Al Malik and Salman Al Malik, in the Oryx and Al Maha lounges.

Engr Badr Mohammed Al Meer, chief operating officer at HIA said: “HIA prides itself for being an innovative exhibition space. Art is an integral part of HIA, having been designed to house permanent and temporary exhibitions.”

QM has worked with local, regional and international artists for over five years to commission and acquire artworks for key locations in and around Hamad International Airport.
