An exhibition that interprets the vibrancy of Qatar’s historic Msheireb district as a centre of commerce opens in April 2017 at Msheireb Museums in Msheireb Downtown Doha. It has been organised by students of UCL Qatar, as part of their yearly UCL Qurates initiative of the Masters in Museum and Gallery Practice programme.
The exhibition will remain open until 27 July 2017 at Mohammed Bin Jassim House in Msheireb Museums.
Back to Msheireb presents a selection of found objects and oral histories of personal memories of this former commercial neighbourhood. Through an installation of pop-up stores - such as restaurant, travel agency and photo studio - inspired by the eclectic and often quirky character of this part of Doha this exhibition takes you back, with a sense of nostalgia, in time when Qatar’s old Msheireb district was a popular destination for shopping, gadgets, food, and socialising.
