Our open call seeks emerging artists from across the MENA region, with the aim of introducing ten diverse practices to the established landscape at BEIRUT ART FAIR.
We consider REVEALING by SGBL 2019 a space to take risk, to make lasting connections among artists across the region, and to challenge the local market. Application and participation are free, spread the call!”
