The Majlis: A Meeting Place

in 2020/201, Rajae was asked to oversee the production and presentation of The Majlis: A Meeting Place at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

For this 6-month presentation in the San Giorgio Maggiore, among other things, a major loan agreement was made with the World Museum, allowing Rotterdam museum pieces to be shown at the most important architectural biennale in the world. The exhibition was praised by international press and by the curator of the Venice Biennale. The catalog of the exhibition was then created with a small team of talents and distributed by Thames & Hudson. A virtual version of the exhibition was also created.


On November 15, 2022, The Majlis: A Meeting Place opened at the Old Palace at The National Museum of Qatar and was on view through March 2023.

Rajae brokered the agreement with the National Museum of Qatar and a donation by Sheikha Al Mayassa Al Thani for this exhibition. Rajae also brokered an agreement with museum stores IN-Q for the sale of the catalog and crafts and brokered a distribution deal with Roza publishing for the sale and distribution of the catalog in the region.
