ART ACROSS BEIRUT
Showing that Beirut remains a hub for contemporary art, the fourth Beirut Art Fair kicks off today, hosting 40 galleries from over 15 countries. BIEL is filled with modern and contemporary art from emerging talent of the ME.NA.SA region (Middle East, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia). In conjunction with the fair is a public festival for all to enjoy, Beirut Art Week. View the map here, and begin your trail around the city, taking in world renowned artwork as you go. Be sure not to miss Aïshti Foundation’s contributions: “Formula One” by Matthew Monahan (pictured), displayed inside the Elie Saab boutique, and Martin Boyce’s “From This Place,” on show at BIEL. Beirut Art Week runs until September 24.
