ACCIONA Cultura delivers the 'Lusail Museum' exhibition in Qatar
A JOURNEY IN TIME. The exposition, "Lusail Museum: Tales of a Connected World", will excite visitors about the forthcoming museum, showcasing Orientalist art, archaeological artefacts and media from antiquity to the 21st century.

QATAR.- ACCIONA Cultura is responsible for delivering the technical development and museographic implementation for the Lusail Museum: Tales of a Connected World exhibition for Qatar Museums (QM).

Located in the heart of Doha at the Qatar Museums Gallery - Al Riwaq, the Lusail Exhibition explores cultural interactions between the greater MENA (the Middle East North Africa) region and its peripheries, Europe, Central and East Africa, and Central, South and East Asia. The exposition will excite visitors about the forthcoming Lusail Museum, currently under development, showcasing a world-class collection of Orientalist art, archaeological artefacts and media from antiquity to the 21st century.

The 237 artefacts displayed represent a large collection of paintings on canvas, jewellery, tapestries, costumes, film props, books, manuscripts, photographs, decorated ceramics, glass, and metal. Each narrative is tied to a space where the visitor will be able to approach and interact with the objects.

The works carried out by ACCIONA Cultura cover the six different spaces of the Lusail exhibition: Uncovering Orientalism; Cleopatra; Desert; the Delacroix’s Gaze; Al-Hamidiyya Souq; and Journeys. Through each gallery, the exhibition explores the role of art, exchange and ideas in the transformation of cultural representations from the pre-Islamic period to the present day, showcasing some of the big ideas, building anticipation and helping to shape thinking for the new museum.

ACCIONA Cultura’s work includes the technical development, project management, fit-out, graphics, media productions, showcases, lighting, prototyping and testing, exhibition fabrication, object mounting, maintenance and assembly and dismantling of the exhibition, which occupies a total area of 2,800 m2.
