GALLERY STATEMENT

Marfa’ Projects works with local and regional artists to produce and present idea-based projects that engage with Beirut’s diverse contemporary art scene. Marfa’ Projects was founded by Joumana Asseily in 2015 and builds on her deep links with the city’s independent non-profit art scene. The gallery is located in two garages near the customs house in the Marfa’ neighbourhood, which means port in Arabic. Beirut’s port has long been one of the foundations of the city’s economic life, a key transit point for goods and information between Lebanon and the world. The gallery supports local artists to build links internationally, as well as providing a platform in Beirut for the work of pertinent international artists. Two key elements of the exhibitions programme are parallel events and publications that are released with every exhibition and that aim at engaging with contributors and with the local audience.
