Fruitvale Station

  • Written by

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Dramatic Feature and the Audience Award for US Dramatic Film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and widely touted to be the film of the year, ‘Fruitvale Station’ tells the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old African American man who was shot by police on the San Francisco transit system on New Year’s Day, 2009, and whose tragic death shook the San Francisco Bay Area – and the entire American nation – to its very core.

‘Fruitvale Station’ is the year’s most moving and essential film.”

Katara Art Center have announced "The Walled Garden" and the accompanying performance of "Landscape" by renowned British sound and visual artist Max Eastley, as part of Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture.

The exhibition "The Walled Garden" features a series of new installation works drawn from locally-sourced materials. The unique work created for this exhibition reflects the artist's responses to the properties of materials found in the city.The works, developed onsite prior to the exhibition opening, reflects the artist's immediate approach and response to the materials chosen, creating independent objects, "instruments of blind, motiveless intent."

Alongside the exhibition, which runs from 15 December 2013 to 25 January 2014, the artist will present a performance of original sound works entitled "Landscape" on the opening night at 7pm as part of KAC's sound, music, and performance series Offbeat.

The following night, also at 7pm, Doha-based artists have the opportunity to take part in a sound art workshop.

Max Eastley is a pioneer in the performance of sound art. He uses elements of pure sound, generated by everyday materials, to create otherworldly or natural tones that encourage the listener to explore their imagination.

الحي الثقافي كتارا

Once a thriving port bustling with fishermen, merchants and their families, the town now lies silently beneath the desert sands.
Since 2009 this protected area has been under investigation by an international team of archaeologists and scientists led by the Qatar Museums Authority.
Through archaeology, historical research and working with the local communities the project aims to document and understand the rise and fall of this unique site and the important role it played in the development of the modern Gulf.

 

 

كانت البلدة في زمنٍ مضى مرفأ ساحلياً يعج بالصيادين والتجار وعائلاتهم، غير أن أطلالها ترقد اليوم بهدوء تحت رمال الصحراء.
تخضع هذه المنطقة المحمية لأعمال التنقيب والبحث منذ العام 2009 على يد فريق عالمي مُكون من أثريين وعلماء مختصين تحت ادارة هيئة متاحف قطر.
يهدف المشروع إلى توثيق وفهم ازدهار واضمحلال هذا الموقع الفريد والدور المهم الذي لعبه في تطوير منطقة الخليج العربي، وذلك من خلال أعمال التنقيب عن الآثار والبحوث التاريخية والتعاون مع المجتمعات المحلية.
