Told, Untold, Retold
Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha
30 December 2010 – 28 May 2011
Told | Untold | Retold sought simply to let the artists speak, free of stereotypes or contrived connections.
The exhibition brought together twenty-three artists with twenty-three commissioned works, marking a significant departure, a new way of looking at both art and the world. It was the first and largest exhibition of contemporary art on this scale within a museum context in the history of the Arab world. In a world where everything is in motion, artists are not confined within rigid cultural identities based on the traditional geography.
The exhibition invited visitors to look at artists, not as national representatives, but as 'transmodern' artists in consistent metamorphosis.
