POSTPONED! New dates coming soon...
Faiths Unveiled is a celebration through contemporary art of the diverse faith traditions in Qatar that are represented in the Religious Complex in Doha, the capital city. The exhibition will creatively highlight the myriad of Christian traditions in Qatar – representing the mosaic of Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical and Pentecostal Churches from all over the world. Artists from the diversity of these religious traditions in Qatar will artistically share their distinct cultural expressions and traditions of faith in their artwork. The exhibition will highlight Qatar’s role of interreligious hospitality and religious tolerance through the transcendent medium of art.
Artwork is submitted through an Open Call to artists from the diverse faith traditions represented in the Religious Complex for two or three-dimensional artwork representing the theme of the exhibition which is: the artwork should reflect in someway the artist's specific cultural expression or tradition of Christian faith. A new open call submission deadline will be shared soon.
A panel of judges will select 20-30 artworks for exhibition, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prizes awarded, plus an Honorable Mention. The exhibition will be showcased in the lobby gallery of the Anglican Centre within Doha’s Religious Complex during the Fall 2020 (rescheduled dates to be decided soon) and likely at another venue in early in 2021. While curated by CARAVAN, Faiths Unveiled is coordinated locally in Qatar by the Anglican Church in Qatar.
