Exhibit – “Crucial Turns: A Critical Mapping of Art at AUB”

In Events by AUB Libraries / May 26, 2017 / 0 Comments

AUB faculty, students and staff gathered on the evening of Tuesday, May 23rd at the Nami Jafet Memorial Library for the opening ceremony of a capstone exhibition curated by three AUB Art History students displaying material depicting critical turns in Art at AUB since in the foundation of the Fine Art Department since the 1950s.

The exhibit is curated by Katharine Gordon, Lama El Khatib and Nour Osseiran, all three of which are AUB students, who initiated and completed this project as part of the “Theories, Methods, and Practices of Curating” (AHIS284) seminar at AUB; a seminar that acts as a capstone for the students within the Art History major.

The course is instructed by Angela Harutyunyan, Associate Professor at the Department of Fine Arts and Art History at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, AUB, who said that the importance of this exhibit is that it is a first attempt to bring to light the rich history of art at AUB as formed by and formative of the art scene in Beirut and Lebanon at large. For the students, it is an opportunity to understand and historicize art and art history education that they themselves are undergoing.

The exhibit gives tribute to artists such as Walid Sadek, Daniele Genadry, David Kurani, Arthur Frick, and John Carswell. The material displayed include original paintings that were generously provided by the artists, in addition to photos, sketches, posters and other primary sources found at the Archives and Special Collections department at the University Libraries.

The exhibit will remain on display at the lobby at Jafet Library until Friday, June 2nd.

The curators believe that the exhibition brings together a montage of key moments and figures in and around the Art Department at AUB since its inception and throughout its tumultuous history by using archival material, which provide a general overview of what has been documented – from 1946 until today. Presenting these documents alongside contemporary art works, the curators hope to engage the audience in a critical journey of the art department at AUB.
