Modernizing Collaborations in West Beirut : Farid Haddad and Jay Zerbe (1969-1970)


Du 10/12/2020 à 00:00 jusqu'au 05/03/2021 à 00:00

Please join us for the launch of this semester's online exhibition at AUB Art Galleries. 


The project throws light on a collaboration between two artists: the Lebanese Farid Haddad and the American Jay Zerbe. 

It focuses on events taking place in West Beirut around AUB in 1969-1970.An electronic publication is available for download  presenting drawings made by these artists’ along with archival material. The introductory text accompanying the project argues that the exchange between Haddad’s constructivist aesthetics and Zerbe’s more humanistic or expressionist drawings could be viewed as a pictorial manifestation of the dialectics of modernization in the region.


A virtual discussion with the artists will take place on December 10, (2020) at 2:00 PM Beirut time.
