Beirut Art Week 2014

Strategically located in the Levant, on the Eastern coast of the Mediterranean, Lebanon has always been a crossroads linking East to West and sea to hinterland. Its capitol, Beirut, is immensely involved in the economic and cultural life of the region, including its flourishing art scene. As Liu Dao prepared to make our 1st journey to the ‘Paris of the Middle East’ for the 2014 installment of the Beirut Art fair, we were delighted by the chance to take part in ‘Beirut Art Week- an invitation-only affair held by the fairs organizers for artists to express themselves outside of the typical fair booth or white walled gallery and into the urban landscape of Beirut’s streets and luxury boutiques.

Following the success of the opening edition of Beirut Art Week in 2013, organizers suggested a new ‘out-side the walls’ itinerary with the collaboration of the Municipality of Beirut and Solidere, with avant-garde works displayed on the streets and in the shops of downtown Beirut, mostly along the luxurious Rue Foch. From September 17th to the 24th, Liu Dao’s dynamic ‘Suffer for Fashion’ and ‘Coquet Marceau’ will entertain the masses as they dance on display at Italian luxury boutique Tod’s, while “All You Remember” spins tales of nostalgia at London based Joseph’s.

The week kicks off on Wednesday the 17th at 6:00 pm in front of the Hotel le Gray at Jean Marie Fiori’s iconic ‘Horse’ sculpture. Shuttles are available for the fairs duration from 3-9:30 pm.
