Samia Halaby

FROM THE 2ND TILL THE 26TH OF FEBRUARY

The Beirut Exhibition Center and Ayyam Gallery are pleased to present Samia Halaby: Five Decades of Painting and Innovation, the first major retrospective to be organized for the renowned artist. 

Curated by art historian Maymanah Farhat, this comprehensive survey includes over 50 works of art, and highlights Halaby’s critical pursuit of furthering abstraction and its rootedness in materialist philosophy, and thus includes paintings, drawings, prints, computer-generated kinetic works, and hanging sculptures. 

Visible in such varied works as Third Spiral (1970),Blue Trap in a Railroad Station (1977), Worldwide Intifada (1989), and Pyramid (2011) is the artist’s radical approach to the historical progression of formalism in international art, which, she has argued and demonstrated, should parallel the technological advancement of mankind, including the general development of societies, while reflecting principles found in nature.

The exhibition runs from the 2nd to the 26th of February.
