Special Report


The October 2021 Art Special Report will seek to assess the state of the Lebanese art scene in the midst of the financial, social, medical, and political crises.
Stories will focus on the different pillars of the cultural community – artists, critics, museums, collectors, and the public – to frame their particular voices in defining and preserving Lebanon’s cultural history and its future:

➣ Lebanese artists’ struggles to maintain creativity and productivity
➣ How art galleries promote artists and identify opportunities for them
➣ Art critics’ essential role in building a social and national dialog around art
➣ Museums’ strategies to improve audience outreach and participation
➣ Art collectors, between business sense and storytelling
➣ Non-governmental institutions filling in the lack of cultural policies
