Vintage car owners and collectors will have the opportunity to showcase their collections at the Mal Lawal 3 exhibition, set to take place in the last quarter of 2020 at the National Museum of Qatar.
The highly anticipated exhibition is under the patronage of Qatar Museums’ (QM) Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, and in collaboration with Mawater Centre. Mal Lawal, meaning “from the old days”, is an exhibition that showcases collections owned by private collectors from Qatar.
Items presented in the exhibition may include manuscripts, weapons, Islamic collections, maps, coins, ethnographic and heritage items, jewellery, clothing, accessories and cars. Interested car collectors are invited to submit a portfolio by the end of July 2020, which will include “a short description of the selected car(s) and a few images of or related to the car(s)”.
In a press statement, NMoQ director Sheikha Amna bint Abdulaziz bin Jassim al-Thani said: “Mal Lawal 3, which will be hosted at the National Museum of Qatar, will exhibit and reveal a unique insight into private collectors and the stories their collections carry.
Vintage cars are amongst several types of collections that this Mal Lawal exhibition will feature.” Mawater Centre director Salim Saeed al-Mohannadi said, “We thank NMoQ for this opportunity and constructive co-operation, through which we document the history of the cars of the people of Qatar.
This is the fruit of the co-operation agreement for organising Mawater exhibitions by documenting the history of cars in Qatar.” Mal Lawal 3 is the only event of its kind in the region and acts as a platform that brings together private collectors, helping support and further establish the practice of collecting in Qatar.
The collections that will be showcased in 2020 will present the personal stories of the collectors and highlight their passion for art, culture and heritage. Interested collectors should contact the Mal Lawal team on email@example.com
