Beirut and the Golden Sixties: A Manifesto of Fragility is a multidisciplinary exhibition co-curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath that revisits a turbulent chapter in the development of modernism in Beirut, spanning the 1958 Lebanon Crisis to the 1975 Lebanese Civil War. The exhibition is a tribute to the Beirut art scene of the 1960s, which witnessed an explosion of creativity and artistic experimentation and became a destination for many intellectuals and artists from across the Arab world. The exhibited artworks - featuring 230 artworks and 300 archival documents drawn from nearly 40 collections worldwide - come from more than 30 institutional and private collections from Lebanon, Europe, the UK, and the USA. The exhibition adds 8 works from Mathaf’s collection and a number of archival documents that bring additional understanding of the artist’s practices. The exhibition will be on view until 05 August 2023.
