This commemorative catalogue features highlights from the first Mal Lawal exhibition in 2012 and offers a rare glimpse into the private collections that exist in Qatar, while also providing a unique overview of contemporary Qatari art. An Arabic phrase meaning ‘from the old days’, the Mal Lawal exhibition invited locals to share objects that have resonated with them throughout their lives. From everyday heritage objects to valuable artefacts, contemporary treasures and Qatari art pieces, the community-led contributions shaped an incredible show. Both esteemed collectors and amateur enthusiasts offered younger audiences a glimpse of a rapidly disappearing past.
