About Us
The world hasn’t been closer as it is now, and the knowledge hasn’t been as fast developing and distinctive as it
has become today. As a consequence, the world has now become like a large global village in which knowledge
continues to build up every second. In this context, Culture had to play two rolls : to maintain its identity and to
keep pace with modern developments . Without a doubt it is a difficult and sensitive equation. The Cultural Village
Foundation is working on this equation through the vision of His Highness Hamad Bin Khalifa AlThani – Emir of
Qatar , and in the context of the specific targets, which have been carefully planned as part of Qatar’s National
Vision 2030.

Katara Opera House is a very
splendid theatre building
destined for opera performances.
It consists of a stage, an orchestra
pit, audience seating, balconies
and backstage facilities for
costumes and set building.
The Katara Opera House is
home to the Qatar Philharmonic
Orchestra and is rapidly
becoming a vivacious hub for
some of the world’s leading
performers. A blend of ultramodern
architecture and traditional
Islamic design, the Opera House
offers a luxurious cultural
experience, and accommodates
up to 550 people.
A subtle type of sound reinforcement
called acoustic enhancement
is used in the Opera House, it
helps to give more even sound in
the hall and prevent dead spots
in the audience seating area
by augmenting a hall’s intrinsic
acoustic characteristics, it uses
an array of microphones
connected to a computer which
is connected to an array of
loudspeakers.
The Opera House is an artistic
excellence to produce and
present imaginative and
engaging performing arts events
from Qatar and around
the world.

Lightweeds
Nature is becoming rare in our daily
life. In the way our urbanizing world is
generally built and planned, our everyday
surroundings have become perpetual and
static through conditioned climates and 24
hour lighting. When unpredictable natural
elements such as a lifting breeze,a sudden
shower, or a setting sun are planned out of
our surroundings, the timeline of our every
day is lost.
A living digital organism growing on the
walls and floors of an indoor space,
that reacts to the actual nature of its location
and reveals the character of a
space. The projected plant silhouettes are
alive; from a digital seed that contains
the genetical data of its family, they grow
affected by actual measured rainfall and
sunshine, move directly on actual wind,
and throughout the day turn along with
the sun. The plants are not pre-drawn or
animated, but uniquely generated by the

software and the space they reside in. A
lightweed consists of a several hundred
parts that are independently linked to the
sensors outside, creating a live generated,
hyper-real motion.
At the start of the day they are few, but as
the space is used they pollinate from wall
to wall and increase in amount. Because
their seeds travel along with the direction
of passing people, and make new plants
grow on places towards where there
is more traffic, they reveal the way the
space is being used. Because the way the
plants grow, behave, pollinate and die is
completey defined by the space, they make
up continuously evolving combinations that
are never equal.
Living plants that restore the natural timeline
that a space has walled out.

Dreams between fact and fiction
Nja Mahdaoui is one of the most celebrated living contemporary
artists and calligraphers in Tunisia. His work is internationally
renowned, especially since winning the international competition
for the external design of some of Gulf Air’s fleet to mark its 50th
Anniversary.
Mahdaoui considers himself ‘an explorer of signs’ and has been
described as a ‘choreographer of letters’. His work is based on
the shapes associated with Kufic script and Arabic letter forms,
but he does not set out to write meaningful texts. Famous for his
meticulous work in ink on parchment, Mahdaoui stresses the visual
impact of his compositions, which he refers to as ‘calligrams’
(‘beautiful writing’). His beautifully stylised Arabic letters fall amidst
row after row of minute inscriptions and intricate patterns, like a
visual melody.
Katara Galleries will be exhibiting some Arabic Calligraphic
works as part of its 2012 Ramadan exhibition program.
22 July 13 Sept.
Katara in coordination with Ministry of Islamic Affairs (Awqaf)
will be hosting a series of Quran classes for boys and girls under

Daniel Weil

Katara Gallery 2, Bldg.18
19 July 8 Sept.
A Matter of Time includes the brand-new Time clocks by Daniel Weil
which are constructed from sleek nickel-plated brass and steel.
All of the pieces speak of Weil’s fascination with technology and
conceptual notions of time. “Objects like clocks are both prosaic
and profound,” Weil says. “Prosaic because of their ubiquity in
everyday life, profound because of the mysterious nature of time
itself. Time can be reduced to hours, minutes, and seconds, just as
a clock can be reduced to its component parts. This doesn’t explain
time, but in a way simply exposes its mysterious essence.”
