Beirut Art Center
Beirut Art Center (BAC) is a non-profit association, space and platform dedicated to experimental art in Beirut, Lebanon. The aim of BAC is to produce, present and contextualize local and international art research and cultural practices in a space that is open, free, and active all year long.
BAC seeks engagement with various art forms and experiences and alternative methods of knowledge production and distribution. We support local and regional contemporary artists with solo exhibitions including Akram Zaatari (2009), Khalil Rabah (2012), Hassan Khan (2016) and several group shows including 8 editions of Exposure, an exhibition project presenting emerging artists residing in Lebanon. The center also facilitates the creation and realization of projects as well as interactions between local and international cultural players including shows with Gerhard Richter (2012), Jean-Luc Moulene (2013), and Francis Alys (2018), as well as hosting several editions of the Meeting Points festival and Ashkal Alwan's Homeworks.
