Qatar: a strategy of influence

Art Market | After Japan in 2012 and the United Kingdom in 2013, Qatar Brazil 2014 is the next stage in a widespread programme of cultural and economic exchange developed by Qatar in Asia, Europe and Latin America. This is strategy of influence where the Qatar Museum Authority and its estimated annual budget of $1 billion play a central role with, for example, sponsorship of major exhibitions including those by Takashi Murakami at the Palace of Versailles and Damien Hirst at the Tate Modern. This institution, the cornerstone of the Qatar National Vision 2030 project, has propelled Director Sheikha Al-Mayassa to the summit of the international market. Crowned « Qatar’s culture Queen » by the Economist in 2012, she was ranked number one in ArtReview’s Top 100 influential people in 2013 after coming in at just 91 in 2011 : a dazzling rise.
