BEIRUT ART WEEK 2018

BEIRUT ART WEEK 2018: AN ARTISTIC WALK OF 16 STOPS THROUGH THE HEART OF BEIRUT

Beirut – September 18, 2018. Under the Patronage of the Minister of Culture H. E. Dr. Ghattas Khoury, BEIRUT ART WEEK (September 18-25) was launched, continuing its annual tradition of bringing contemporary art to the heart of Beirut. 

BEIRUT ART WEEK is a unique offsite program of BEIRUT ART FAIR (September 20-23) featuring works of art displayed in public spaces and the city’s most prestigious shops.

 

H. E. Dr. Khoury stated, “In the Economic Development Plan, obviously Culture plays a very important role. Investment in culture is an investment in the future, and it’s also an investment in the economy. Every year, this art fair [BEIRUT ART FAIR] is getting bigger and bigger, and we have a country proud of its culture, of its art, and of its people. It’s also very important to point out that we’re opening a museum in 2020, which will be another landmark in Lebanon!”  

 

Reflecting Beirut’s standing as a cultural center, this year’s artistic walk of BEIRUT ART WEEK includes 16 STOPS with a festive spirit that showcase important artworks of Lebanese and international artists placed inside and outside Hotel Le Gray, and at Samir Kassir Pool, Beirut Souqs entrance, Elie Saab Boutique, 3Beirut, Pik’d pop-up store, the old L’Orient-Le Jour building in Beirut Souqs, Opera Gallery, and Arthaus Gemmayzeh.

Among the stops, the amazing “ciné-concert” of exclusive archives of Beirut titled “In the Heart of Beirut”, with a live performance by SIG, at the Opera Gallery terraces, in cooperation with the Lebanese Film Festival.

The public is on a rendezvous to enjoy the works of the gifted artists Nayla Romanos Iliya, Bassam Kyrillos, Marc Sijan, Young-Deok Seo (2 works), Merete Rasmussen, Charles Khoury, Bibiana Domit, Antonio Signorini, Stefano Bombardieri, Cathleen Naundorf, Philippe Aractingi, Nabil Helou, Jean Boghossian, and Carlos Garcia de la Nuez. 

 

BEIRUT ART FAIR was created in 2010 and is directed by Laure d’Hauteville, an exhibition curator and former journalist. BEIRUT ART FAIR’s Artistic Director is Pascal Odille, an expert in modern and contemporary art (member of C.N.E.S.). Marine Bougaran directs the fair’s photography section as well as its "Projects" spaces.

The 9th edition of BEIRUT ART FAIR will take place from 20 to 23 September, in Hall 3 of the Seaside Arena (formerly BIEL), opening on 19 September, in the Lebanese capital with an increase of 45% of exhibition space and 32,000 expected visitors (compared to 28,000 in 2017).
