Samia Halaby
'Five Decades of Painting and Innovation' at Beirut Exhibition Center
2-26 February, 2015

Following a major retrospective at Ayyam Gallery Dubai, Al Quoz in 2014, Samia Halaby’s oeuvre will be showcased at the Beirut Exhibition Center from 2-26 February 2015. Halaby’s five decades of visual investigations and ever-changing compositions, from early geometric experiments to today’s explosions of colours, have defined her as pioneer of Arab abstraction. Curated by Maymanah Farhat, the exhibition will illustrate each phase of her prolific career, the fifty artworks presented at the Beirut Exhibition Center will include paintings, drawings, prints, computer-generated kinetic works, and hanging sculptures.
