Beirut Art Fair, 2017
The 2017 edition of BEIRUT ART FAIR will offer an exceptional and innovative program that confirms Beirut’s role as one of today’s most vibrant centers of contemporary creation.
BEIRUT ART FAIR is the leading platform for the discovery of new artists, trends, galleries, institutions, and publications from the ME.NA.SA., thus representing a principal catalyst for artistic development of the region.
As Beirut is a bridge between East & West, the fair establishes and builds artistic links between diverse cultures, fostering collaboration between galleries with a demonstrated commitment to making discoveries.
In just a few years, BEIRUT ART FAIR has become an international artistic event that attracts an ever greater number of visitors to Lebanon: professionals and art lovers from the region and from around the world. We’ve decided to highlight this evolution by putting together a selection committee that reflects the support BEIRUT ART FAIR enjoys from the most important art collectors in the region, whom we’ve enlisted on the basis of their rich expertise, their intellectual curiosity, and the quality of their views on the regional art scene.
Since its creation in 2010, BEIRUT ART FAIR has served to both spotlight and reinforce a dynamic art market that today finds itself in full expansion, both in Lebanon and in the broader ME.NA.SA. region.
Concretely, this dynamism is supported by a series of initiatives, both institutional and private, that contribute directly to an increased valuation of local and regional artists, both modern and contemporary.
