The Human Condition

Arneli Art Gallery and Rebirth Beirut proudly invite you to their first collaborative exhibition “THE HUMAN CONDITION”.

“The Human Condition” is an assortment of universal experiences, that are inherent to the essence of humanity. It encompasses the colorful range of human emotions, experiences, and struggles, including joy, love, pain, suffering, birth, death, and everything in between. Our human condition is formed by our culture, history, and personal circumstances, and is also influenced by larger existential questions such as the meaning of life, the nature of reality, and the existence of a higher power.

Throughout this exhibition, 15 artists have sought to understand and represent the human condition through their works, reflecting on the struggles and triumphs that define what it means to be human. With more than 60 artworks varying between paintings, mixed media, works on paper, photography, sculptures, poetry and video art, “The Human Condition” represents an unprecedented collective exhibition with young and emerging artists shaping the future of Art in Lebanon.

Participating artists: Aya Abu Hawash, Dzovig Arnelian, Elizabeth Hefty-Khoury, Joanna Raad, Krikor Avessian, Lodi Sabra, Mayssa Khoury, Mary Kaady, Maral Der Boghossian, Moushegh Karavartanian, Noura Bakkar, Sarkis Sislian, Tarek Saab, Toufic Melhem with a special focus on the work of the international artist Johnny Semaan.

Participating writers: Ziad Jreige, Rawan Ezzedine, Rima Barakat and Rebecca Whiting.

This exhibition is curated by Manar Ali Hassan.
