Two Exclusive Exhibitions

dedicated to the Region and Lebanon


Tribute to Etel Adnan, Lebanese artist and poetess

Etel Adnan, Eight ceramics (50 x 50 cm), directed by Alexandra Catelain-Orange, © MENART FAIRFrom the Olivéa series, a tribute to the goddess of the olive tree composed of sixteen paintings, these eight ceramics, produced by the Seine Maritime department (France), are one of Etel Adnan’s last projects before she passed away in Paris (2021). They were produced at the Pôle Céramique Normandie and required several months of research by the ceramist Alexandra Catelain-Orange.

The material brilliantly and sensitively translates the work of the Lebanese painter and poetess and is part of a long practice of this discipline for the artist.

Etel Adnan’s works can be found in numerous collections, including the MNAM-Centre Pompidou (Paris), MoMA (New York), M+ (Hong Kong), Institut du Monde Arabe (Paris), the British Museum (London), the Tate Gallery (London), the National Museum for Women in the Arts (Washington D.C.), as well as in numerous private collections.
