Syria Matters Exhibition at MIA


Nov 22, 2018 to Apr 30, 2019
09:00 AM until 07:00 PM


Under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chairperson of Qatar Museums, the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha will present a major exhibition entitled Syria Matters, co-curated by MIA Director Dr. Julia Gonnella and Rania Abdellatif,  as part of the MIA ten-year anniversary celebrations.


Drawing on MIA’s spectacular collection alongside loans from world-renowned museums, including the Louvre and the Museum of Ancient Near Eastern Art, the exhibition highlights Syria’s key role in the artistic and intellectual history of the world. Much of which has been tragically lost through the destruction of its fabled cities of Palmyra and Aleppo. The exhibition explores the multifaceted layers of Syria’s architectural and cultural history going as far back as the country’s early pre-Islamic past and its contributions to world history today.

Time: Sundays to Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM, except Fridays from 1:30 PM – 7:00 PM
