Group exhibition

BEIRUT was an exhibition curated by Bariaa Mourad and shown during summer 2011 at Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna. It was the first issue of an itinerating exhibition cycle dedicated to the Lebanese capital exploring its creative potential as well as featuring various Lebanese artists' work and subjects relating to Lebanon's critical position in the world. Being presented at different international venues, its succeeding show BEIRUT II will now reach its next stop at the Contemporary Art Platform in Kuwait.
