Christie’s presents We Are All Beirut, a charity auction to benefit and aid the restoration and reawakening of the arts and cultural landscape of Beirut. The proceeds of the auction will be entrusted to The Arab Funds for Arts and Culture (AFAC) to support the arts and culture community in Beirut including the Sursock Museum.

A selection of the works in the auction were part of the exhibition ‘Beirut Year Zero’ which was organised recently in response to the tragic event on 4th August by Zoe and Nabil Debs of Arthaus Beirut and seen by thousands of visitors. The proceeds of these selected works will mainly be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross and Christie’s is delighted to welcome this initiative, as the company has supported the Red Cross in times of crisis for more than 100 years.

We Are All Beirut will auction works by artists across three spheres: the arts, the world of design and jewelery. With works by internationally acclaimed artists such as Mona Hatoum and specifically commissioned works for the cause by Ayman Baalbaki, Serwan Baran, Abdel Rahman Katanani and Nabil Nahas as well as iconic designs by Paulin Paulin Paulin and Hervé van der Straaten. The jewelery segment of the sale will include exquisite lots courteously donated by various brands and Maison’s, including Hemmerle, Boghossian and Piaget.

The exhibition is held from 11 – 24 November.
