SPAIN – Acciona Producciones y Diseño chosen to design and implement “The Hunt”
The new exhibition at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha will remain open between 16th September and January 9th, 2016, and it’s expected to receive over 70,000 visitors.
Acciona Producciones y Diseño has been chosen by the Qatar Museums Authority to carry out the design and implementation of the new temporary exhibition at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, called ‘The Hunt‘, showing the relationship between art and the hunting tradition.
More than a hundred pieces among which illuminated manuscripts, inlaid metal, polychrome ceramics, hunting gadgets and an important collection of rifles of the Islamic era will be featured, distributed in 40 showcases grouped by subject areas including a large octagonal central module called ‘Treasure Room’.
In the center of this room there will be a floating dome of 6 meters where audiovisual production will be screened with scenes that contextualize the exhibits. The dome-screen will be erected on a reflective floor to give visitors the impression of being direct participants of the projection.
