Event Details

Agial Art Gallery presents Yazan Halwani’s exhibition “Hotel Beirut, or Mundane Entropy”.

Yazan Halwani, a finance specialist and artist, is famed for his graffiti murals of popular national icons such as Sabah, Fairuz, and Mahmoud Darwish. For his latest body of work, he has shifted from the production of public murals to a studio practice that he has developed over the last 3 years. This work consists of three series of narrative paintings that present scenes of daily life in Lebanon. Together these series attempt to dispel the myths of Lebanese exceptionalism centering on the successful expat, the Phoenician, the Lebanese polyglot. Halwani’s work sheds light on the inextricability of economic downfall and migration in Lebanon from within the fabric of a total system of free-market, financialized capitalism.
