Museum of Islamic Art, Doha

In 2013 the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, held an exhibition with Turquoise Mountain entitled "Ferozkoh: Tradition and Continuity in Afghan Art,” curated by Dr. Leslee Katrina Michelsen.

Sixteen of Turquoise Mountain's artisans travelled to Qatar to spend time with ancient artifacts from the museum's archives. The artisans then produced over forty pieces displayed alongside, and in conversation with, treasures from the Museum's permanent collection.

The exhibition was opened by the patrons of Turquoise Mountain and the Museum of Islamic Art, HRH The Prince of Wales and HE Shaikha Al-Mayassa bint Hamad Al Thani. Tens of thousands of people visited the exhibition during its run, including former President of Afghanistan HE Hamid Karzai, and the exhibition then travelled to London’s Leighton House Museum.
