  • Lebanon: Open Rhapsody at Beirut Exhibition Center

    March 31, 2015

    The exhibition at the Beirut Exhibition Center through Aprils 19th features the work of several contemporary visual artists working in photography and video. The pieces all belong to private collections. The paper airplanes of the children of Tangiers appear alongside the work of Akram Zaatari, where Israeli war machines streak the Lebanese sky. A few steps away: a Parisian scene re-painted by Elger Esser, Ali Cherry’s sandstorm revealing a statue of Saddam Hussein, Hiroshi Sugimoto looking contemplative, and Wolfgang Tillmans playing with ink and liquid. A common thread among them is their shared history, the color of sand, and a blurry appearance.

    From March 2nd to April 19th, 2015
