I got the chance to visit the third edition of the international fair of modern and contemporary art BEIRUT ART FAIR which was held from 5 to 8 July 2012 at the Beirut International Exhibition & Leisure Center (BIEL), with 43 galleries from the Middle East, Europe and North Africa, showcasing their flagship artists.
Some of the returning galleries to BEIRUT ART FAIR included Agial Art Gallery (Lebanon), Emmagoss Art Gallery (Lebanon), Galerie Janine Rubeiz (Lebanon), Galerie Epreuve d’Artiste (Lebanon), Raja’ Nehme Sertin art Gallery (Lebanon), Art Sawa (Dubai, UAE), Ayyam (Lebanon /UAE/Syria), ATHR Gallery (Saudi Arabia) Al Motharaf (Saudi Arabia), Espace Kettaneh Kunigk – Tanit (Lebanon /Germany).
Alongside the galleries, numerous exhibitions enriched the cultural program including street art, VJing, comic strips, video, sculpture and installation.
Here are some works that caught my eye. Enjoy!
