First and foremost, the Fine Art Shippers team delivered works of art from Switzerland and Spain to Qatar. We made sure that every package was safe and secure so that nothing would endanger the safety of the valuables in transit. Upon their arrival in the country, all the crates and boxes were safely unpacked, with the items prepared for further installation.

Fine Art Shippers also shared its wide and valuable experience with other Qatar International Art Festival participants. The choice of hanging systems, lighting, and positioning are essential parts of the exhibition and directly influence the viewer’s experience during the show. It was a pleasure to contribute to the overall atmosphere. That’s how we met a lot of interesting people, from local collectors to international artists.

We were also humbled and excited to help our good friend Will Yaya, a Colombian-born artist who lives and works in Barcelona, Spain, set up the venue. As a matter of fact, he was appointed as Creative Director of QIAF 2019, which turned out to be a memorable edition. Will is our old and loyal client, so assisting him at Qatar International Art Festival was a great pleasure.
