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 and café within the airport. You will be able to purchase merchandise or gift items relating to their museums, exhibitions and cultural programmes, and enjoy food and drink inspired by both international and regional cuisine.
