Zwara is a fluid programme that seeks to spark creativity and collaboration against the backdrop of Qatar’s creative landscape. Held yearly, it’s an invitation for creatives to explore exhibitions, archives and collections and then respond to a design brief, showcasing the importance of storytelling and experimentation in design.

For this second edition, the participating designers were invited to explore the themes, culture and moments featured in the recent exhibition Christian Dior Designer of Dreams. Each designer was then tasked with reimagining the luxury and aesthetics reflected in Dior’s work through their own lens.

2- Abeer Al-Tamimi: Beyond the Rules 

This solo exhibition dives into artist Abeer Al-Tamimi[MOU1] ’s interest in human interaction and behaviour. During her residency at Cité International des arts in Paris, the artist wanted to interact with as many people as possible to answer questions such as why we behave the way we do? And can we control our behaviours and emotions?

What Al-Tamimi discovered was that people are entitled and live in a bubble that invokes negative behaviour. While we are programmed to follow and respect the cultural rules, traditions, and way of life we were born into or are accustomed to, we do not often see other realities, which diminishes our growth in all aspects.

Date: Ongoing until September 24, 2022 


Saturday - Thursday 9:00AM to 7:00PM

Friday 1:30PM to 7:00PM

Location: Gallery 3, Fire Station
