Mal Lawal is a unique showcase of private collections, blending heritage, culture and contemporary art to celebrate historically and socially significant objects and antiques. This is the second edition of the biennale and showcases 100 Qatari and 42 regional private collectors.
Mal Lawal exhibition first placed in 2012. Meaning ‘from the old days’, it invited everyone in Qatar to share the objects that have made an impression and resonated with them throughout their lives. From everyday artefacts and quirky trinkets to contemporary treasures and Qatari art, community-led contributions shaped an incredibly unique show – the first of its kind in the region.
