According to the press release, “Beirut Art Fair dedicates a space for the artistic creation born in the heart of the city and makes the walls speak, revealing five years of archives offering a journey through Beirut, its tags and graffiti, and its performances in urban areas. Links with hip hop culture will be shown throughout the fair with a mix of images of VJs in succession during a performance by a group of Lebanese artists.” Beirut Art Fair Talks will offer the visitors a special programme in which art professionals will have a chance to exchange ideas, while panel discussions on core transformations in the art market and role of media in the artistic sphere aim to attract audiences form the Lebanon and across the Middle East.
