Photography Exhibition: TAGGED: Portraits by Khalifa Al-Obaidly

Events Details

Date: 1 January 1970
Time: 04:00 am - 04:00 am
Price:
The Gallery at VCUQatar presents ‘Tagged’, an exhibition by Qatari Photographer Khalifa Al-Obaidly, as part of this year’s Qatar Now exhibition.



Qatar Now is an engaging exhibition series focusing on contemporary Qatari art and artists.

In a series of portraits, Al-Obaidly has bar-coded the subjects, some of whom are migrant workers, while others are self portraits.

By using a barcode symbol, representing an impersonal number used for identifying and cataloging materials on the face of a person, Al-Obaidly wants to draw attention to a part of world society that is largely unseen, the migrant worker, although omnipresent in all countries, and responsible for producing the goods and services we are all used to in our every day lives. Each of the individuals portrayed could tell us a story of his/her life, points of view and emotions, yet we do not know their names.

This reception is open to the public and no reservations are required.
