Saleh Barakat, a Yale World Fellow, will have his gallery featured at this year’s Art Dubai. Barakat founded the Agial Art Gallery in Beirut in 1990. The Art Dubai website‘s description calls the Agial Gallery “one of the leading destinations for modern and contemporary art from Lebanon and the Arab world. As a pioneering platform, Agial is showcasing a broad spectrum of regional art, from the most established artists to promising emerging artists, alongside retrospective exhibitions. The permanent collection of the gallery is host to an important historical survey of Middle Eastern art, having incubated and witnessed the profound transformation of artistic practices in one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Beyond the exhibition space in Ras Beirut, Agial is a global presence through participation in art fairs, off-site projects and publications, highlighting the role of the gallery in the promotion of Arab art.”
The show will run from March 15-18, 2017. You can find more information by emailing [email protected].
