1- PIPILOTTI RIST: YOUR BRAIN TO ME, MY BRAIN TO YOU
Curated by Tom Eccles and Bouthayna Baltaji, the installation invites visitors to embark on a journey of self-discovery through a multisensory experience that inspires introspection and awe. Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You symbolises humanity’s collective unconscious and the power of the mind.
A key feature of the installation is the “pixels” that comprise 12,000 LED lights strung on cables throughout the gallery for visitors to navigate. Representing neurons, constantly firing and communicating with each other, the pulsing resin-encased bulbs have been programmed in choreography with a soundscape and video installation featuring abstract footage of Qatar’s landscapes.
As they make their way through the exhibit, visitors are encouraged to turn off their personal devices and prepare to experience the journey fully, shifting their focus towards activating different senses.
Date: Ongoing from March 21, 2022 until January 14, 2023.
Time: 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Prices: Free *Pre-reservation required.

2- IS IT A BEAUTIFUL GAME? (Exhibition)
Football, soccer, kurat al qadam, fútbol. The names vary, but the game is the same. It’s played everywhere - in every village, city, country, and continent. Love it or loath it, football is the most popular sport on the planet. It is considered a microcosm of our world: an avatar of social dilemmas, mirroring highs and lows, challenges and successes, struggles and triumphs, wins and losses. The media coverage of the game has reinforced and globalized these human sentiments. However, what would we find if we dared to look behind this glossy cover?
This exhibition is accompanied by a full-color publication, available in Arabic and English, a series of discussion programs, as well as a film screening. Follow the museum on social media for updates on all these aspects.
Date: Ongoing until September 12, 2022
Tiiming: Saturday to Wednesday, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Location: The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar, Education City.
