Place, Poem, Body, Spirit: Looking at Abstract Art in Lebanon

In conjunction with the exhibition Taking Shape: Abstraction from the Arab World, 1950s–1980s

Kaelen Wilson-Goldie, writer, critic, and contributing editor, Bidoun, will explore the multiplicity of modern abstract painting from Lebanon—from Etel Adnan’ evocations of landscape to Huguette Caland’s suggestions of self-portraiture, from Saloua Raouda Choucair’s distilled forms to Saliba Douaihy’s intimations of the divine.

Co-sponsored by NYU’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies and Grey Art Gallery.
