An exhibition of Latin American artists opened on Wednesday at Katara - The Cultural Village. Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti and Mexican ambassador to Qatar Graciela Gomez Garcia inaugurated the event, 'Transition' at Gallery 2 of Building-19.
The exhibition, featuring 26 works of seven artists associated with Latin American Artists in Qatar, is organised by Katara in collaboration with the embassy of Mexico. The event, which highlights the journey of transition that the participating artists have experienced after moving to Qatar, will be open for visitors from 10am to 10pm until January 7, 2021.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, ambassador Graciela said: “Latin America and the Gulf are two distant regions that do not seem to share many common elements at first sight. However, the physical distance imposed by geography has never been an obstacle for nomadic artists who embark on a perennial transition while carrying their roots with themselves.”
