Our passenger terminal showcases a fascinating selection of art, curated in partnership with Qatar Museums. Their desire – to extend art beyond its traditional museum model, and into public spaces – combines perfectly with our vision for culture to be a central and enriching part of our environment.
The artworks you can see at Hamad International Airport are a mix of acquired pieces and others created especially for our spaces. The latter include works by local artists – for example, Qatari artist Faraj Duham was commissioned to create large-scale murals, whilst artist Ali Hassan produced a desert horse sculpture. Other local artists include Mohamed Aljaida, Mubarak al-Malik, Amal Alatham, and Yousif Ahmed.
More pieces will be installed over time, from international artists including Adel Abdessemed, Dia Azzawi, Ahmed al-Bahrani, Maurizio Cattelan, Don Gummer, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, Tom Otterness, Anselm Reyle and Bill Viola.
Qatar Museums have also opened a store within the airport. You will be able to purchase merchandise or gift items relating to their museums, exhibitions and cultural programmes.
