Art Upon Arrival
International airports are not usually places where travelers expect to find fine pieces of art. However, Hamad International Airport has consistently housed a kaleidoscope of local, regional and international artists. Under the same roof, travelers are greeted by the creations of Arab artists such as Faraj Duham’s large-scale murals and Ali Hassan’s desert horse sculpture, next to Urs Fischer and Tom Claassen’s works. Claassen’s sculptures of a herd of oryx are positioned in the arrivals hall. Fischer’s Lamp/Bear—bought at Christie’s for $6.8 million in 2011—the most photographed spot in the airport, sits in the main hall leading to the duty-free shops. Local artists’ photographs are also on display, alongside international works of art.
