The Show Must Go On is a group exhibition that is entirely devoted to the display of monumental artworks. In times such as these, when our lives have been overtaken by daily concerns, The Show Must Go On is a testament to the need for brief moments of respite, as well as big dreams for the future, which perhaps only art can offer.

This exhibition is held in honor of the memory of our beloved art handler and logistician, Firas Dahwish, who was violently killed by the August 4 blast.
