Installation View. Mark Hachem - Beirut.

GALLERY STATEMENT

Mark Hachem opened his first gallery in 1996 in Paris. In 2007 he opened a gallery in New York and three years later in Beirut. He concentrates on the modernists of the Middle East, such as Helen Khal, Leila Nseir and Hussein Madi, and he represents the estates of Hamed Abdalla and Alfred Basbous. Hachem has always been a collector of Kinetic art and hence focused on Jesus Rafael Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Dario Perez-Flores and Victor Vasarely. He supports the careers of contemporary artists whose unique and significant work deserves to be exposed and measured next to the greatest of their generation, including the likes of Chaouki Chamoun, Nasreddine Bennacer, Charbel Samuel Aoun, Leila Shawa, Nadim Kufi, Mahmoud Hamadani, Stephen Peirce, Mathias Schmied, Ghazi Baker, Marwan Chamaa, Ahmad Moualla, Bassam Kyrillos and Wolfgang Stiller. An ardent defender of modern and contemporary art, Hachem is also an adviser and curator to private collectors and public institutions, such as the actual exhibition in the museum Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan. “I am still collecting modernists from around the world as I recently bought multi-viscosity etchings of the Indian printmaker Krishna Reddy, a sculpture by Philippe Hiquily, a sculpture by Marino Di Teana and many works by Hamed Abadalla. These are part of my private collection. I keep a similar portfolio at my gallery of artists I represent. Latin American modernism and its intersection with the Middle East, such as Egypt, Syria and Lebanon’s intersection with Brazil, Argentina and Colombia, are arenas of the future.” The vision of the gallery is to present curated exhibitions and representations in art fairs that reverse the under-representation of artists from beyond the Occident and its perspective by linking the programmes of the Paris space with Beirut. The gallery is also covering the new art wave with African artists such as Victor Ekpuk and Victor Ehikhamenor.
