Event Details

Samia Halaby, de-coding colors

Sfeir-Semler Gallery, Beirut is proud to present the first solo exhibition of SAMIA HALABY in their Beirut space, opening on January 12, 2023 from 6 to 9 PM in the presence of the artist.
Samia Halaby is a Palestinian-American artist, activist, and scholar living and working in New York.

Halaby constantly foregrounded works and techniques, and, in retrospect, was at the avant-garde of artistic production throughout her career. In her work, she manages to capture her biographical and political history, while acutely grasping the very essence of abstract painting.

Farid Haddad, For the Age of Lebanon

Sfeir Semler Gallery is proud to present Farid Haddad: For the Age of Lebanon, the artist’s first solo show in Beirut in over forty years. The exhibition presents an overview of Haddad’s painting oeuvre and spans the last fifty years of his practice between Lebanon
and the United States. The exhibition features a unique series of works from the early 1970s, on view for the first time.

Farid Haddad is a Lebanese-American artist who came of age in the years preceding the Civil War in Lebanon, and during a pivotal moment in Lebanese and Arab Modernism. This exhibition represents Haddad’s work as a vital chapter in the story of abstraction and
minimalism in the region. For the Age of Lebanon spans the artist’s early works, 1971–1977, and his most recent works, 2017–2022.
