Foreword

with Fouad Elkoury, Lamia Joreige, Walid Sadek, Mounira Al Solh & Akram Zaatari
curators: Sandra Dagher & Saleh Barakat

 


Description

The exhibition "Foreword" gathers five artists, whose work covers a number of artistic practices: personal narratives, acts of bearing witness, collecting testimonies, and cutting through the skin of political turmoil and historical events to hit the bone of intimate expression. The artists commissioned for the Lebanese pavilion come from different backgrounds, work in different media, and are at varying stages of their respective careers. More than that, however, they are all, each in their own fashion, questioning the formation and experience of self, individualism, and citizenship in ways that are illuminating well beyond Lebanon's borders. This exhibition in the first-ever Pavilion of Lebanon presents five distinct yet related bodies of work that mark different attempts to answer a similar set of questions - all of which revolve around a more general query, where to begin?
