Introduction to Lebanon’s Visual Art Scene Through House of Today
Beirut, Lebanon is a city of many cultures that have come together and influenced each other over thousands of years. Even after decades of war and a terrible explosion in August of 2020 that destroyed parts of the city, the resilience of the people of Beirut is evidenced by the breathtaking creativity born from its artists.
For this second iteration of our Borderless series, 18th Street Arts Center’s special membership program focused on creating connections between artist communities around the world, we focus on Beirut through a partnership with the collaborative design platform House of Today.
Founded in 2012, House of Today is a non-profit organization that identifies, nurtures, mentors, curates, showcases and connects emerging Lebanese designers to create a relationship with design experts, regionally and globally. House of Today is dedicated to the enrichment of Lebanon’s design culture.
House of Today will create a film highlighting their community of designers that will premiere in early August and launch with a virtual screening and Q&A to happen on the first anniversary of the 2020 blast, at 10am on August 4, 2021.
