On January the 20th 2020, the exhibition Spanish Artists in Doha was inaugurated at Katara Cultural Village.
The exhibition was brought by the Foundation of Art & Culture without Borders with the collaboration of the Chamber of Commerce of Spain in Qatar and the Embassy of Spain.
H. R. H. Princess Beatrice of Orleans, Honorary President of ACWB; Belen Alfaro, Ambassador of Spain to Qatar; Soumaya Akbib, President and Founder of ACWB; and Dr. Khalid bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara were present at the launch.
“The deep rooted and strong relations between Qatar and Spain in several fields, especially the important sector of arts and culture, makes this exhibition a great opportunity for enriching mutual knowledge. Spain has a very important historical legacy of Islamic art and I hope this exhibition will contribute to bring Spain closer to Qatar,” said Ambassador H.E Belén Alfaro at the event.
The Foundation wanted to promote Spanish art among art lovers in Doha. Mrs. Somaya Akbib President of Art & Culture without borders highlighted that the exhibition offers a glimpse of Spanish culture.
The goal of the foundation is in her own words “to use art as a common language to unite people of different backgrounds in the appreciation of beauty”.
