With the FIFA World Cup set to be held in the country this year, all eyes are on Qatar. It’s also a moment when the country’s rich cultural heritage will take centrestage. Playing a pivotal role in that endeavour is Sheikha Al Mayassa, arguably one of the most prominent proponents for the advancement of the region’s art scene. This year, as part of Qatar Museums’ expansion, it plans to take the museum experience outdoors with the installation of around 40 new and commissioned works at locations including shopping malls, railway stations, educations institutions and even football stadiums. The earnestness with which she approaches her role to truly democratise art and make it accessible to the public can be gathered from her Instagram bio: “Public Servant 24/7/365.”
