Dean's statement

By Amir Berbić

It’s here! The much-awaited online premiere of the BFA + MFA Online Exhibition 2021!

VCUarts Qatar is excited to present the future of art and design – the projects created by our graduating Class of 2021.

This year, we invited world-renowned curators to sift through their work, so that we could bring you the best. Now you’ll be able to browse through this hand-picked array that boasts thought-provoking themes such as design for the ageing, homelessness, cultural conservation in Qatar, third culture kids, mental well-being, identity, social hierarchies, and the natural environment, irrespective of the time zone you are in at the moment.

As someone who personally witnessed the challenges that these trailblazers faced over these past months, I’d like to add that as much as this display exhibits their skills, it also showcases the resilience of a group of young people who thrived in the face of the unexpected.

The artwork and designs on view are the final flourish in the portfolios and abilities these students – our Raw Talent – build up over their years at VCUarts Qatar. And we are delighted to share them with you.

Enjoy!
