"16-an-art" painting from MENASART fair www.dailystar.com.lb

Beirut hosts MENASART

08 Jul, 2011 

“Despite the fact that most of the international art world habitually goes to sleep or takes a vacation during the months of July and August, Beirut is making a modest bid to extend the calendar just one more month with MENASART, a fair focusing on the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia, which opens Wednesday in Hall 2 of the Beirut Exhibition and Leisure Center” writes the Daily Star’s Kaelen Wilson-Goldie.

 

Goldie added that “with just 24 participating galleries, MENASART doesn’t come close to the scale of ART HK and Art Basel, both of which host more than 250 galleries a year. But it is the first event of its kind to abbreviate its geographic focus into a brand.” Despite its small size, the fair featured numerous visual art genres including installations, video-art, photography, and mostly paintings.

 

The fair which was open to the public between the 13th and 16th of July, also exhibited two works by AFAC’s grantee Saba Innab from the collection of Agial Art Gallery.
