Gallery Statement

Sfeir-Semler Gallery, with spaces in Hamburg, Germany (since 1985) and Beirut, Lebanon (since 2005), concentrates on international contemporary art with an emphasis on conceptual and minimal art. Since the early 2000s, the gallery has been a key figure in art production in the Arab World, nurturing a unique cross-cultural link between Western and Middle Eastern contemporary art practices. It has taken on an integral role in launching and developing the careers of major international artists from the region such as Walid Raad, Akram Zaatari, Wael Shawky, Khalil Rabah and Etel Adnan, presenting pioneer solo exhibitions, gaining global exposure through participation in international biennials and shows in public institutions, and facilitating acquisitions by notable museums around the world, simultaneously encouraging young emerging artists to expand the gallery’s programme and continue its history of innovation.
