Kamal Naji Mohamad started collecting antiques from a very young age. After collecting a few local items, and inheriting a some more from his dad, Mohamad started collecting from every country he visited, in Europe, Asia, and the Gulf.
The exhibition aims to bridge the gap between the past, present, and future; and to raise young people’s awareness about life in the past, and about local and international antique collections. The local section will exhibit items such as traditional Qatari clothes and dresses and historical books about Qatar that date back more than 200 years, written in both Arabic and English languages.
As part of the exhibition, Mohamad will give visitors a detailed explanation about his collections, organize live black and white photographing sessions, and host a live cinema to present old movies. Additionally, the exhibition will give visitors more information about the history of Qatar, educate them about the importance of exhibiting collections, and help tell the story of the past, before the invention of more modern technological devices.
