The Design Doha Biennial features a display of 49 different types of crafts, as reported by UzA representatives from the M7 Center in Msheireb. In Uzbekistan, there is a strong focus on developing culture, literature, and art as a fundamental part of national spirituality, with the aim of sharing the country’s rich cultural heritage with the global community. Uzbekistan’s participation in the Design Doha Biennial is a prime example of this effort. The center of Qatar’s capital, Msheireb, is currently hosting an exhibition where visitors can admire the works of Uzbekistan’s artists. The project “Crafting Uzbekistan: Tradition in Threads” showcases the fusion of traditional handicrafts and modern creativity, drawing in many art enthusiasts. Among the exhibited works are joint pieces by Beirut designer Nada Debs and Honored Master of Uzbekistan Sirojiddin Rakhmatillayev. Debs praises the unique and captivating works of Uzbekistan, such as the trestle bed, which reflects the shared history and cultural exchange between the Arab world and Uzbekistan. The National Pavilion of Uzbekistan, organized by the Art and Culture Development Foundation, has garnered great interest from journalists, highlighting the country’s rich history of wood carving and textile art. The Foundation has collaborated with Shepherd Studio in Bahrain to create contemporary and innovative exhibition designs for the Design Doha Biennial. On the opening day, the exhibition attracted thousands of visitors, including art enthusiasts, tourists, and members of the Uzbek diaspora, who all appreciate Uzbekistan’s efforts in preserving and promoting the cultural heritage of Central Asia and beyond. Thanks to the country’s growing cultural diplomacy, Uzbek pavilions are becoming a regular sight at international exhibitions. The “Crafting Uzbekistan: Tradition in Threads” exhibition will be open until March 30, 2024. Bekhruz Khudoyberdiyev, reporting from Doha, Qatar.
