Sfeir-Semler Gallery is proud to bring to Beirut FRAGMENTS, a solo show by RAYYANE TABET. The exhibition opens on April 26th, 2018, 7 – 9 PM.
We will also be hosting on Saturday, April 28th from 11:00 AM a reading by the artist, a roundtable conversation with Kim Benzel & Clare Davies, curators at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Bettina Steinbrügge, director of Kunstverein in Hamburg. Kaph books will be launching FRAGMENTS / BRUCHSTÜCKE published in collaboration with Kunstverein, Hamburg, and DAAD Artist-in-Berlin Program.
FRAGMENTS explores an archeological dig led by Max von Oppenheim, a German diplomat and ancient historian, in Tell Halaf, Northeast Syria, at the turn of the 20th century. The project stemmed from a performance presented at the 2016 Marrakech Biennale, and evolved through a residency at the DAAD Artist-in-Berlin Program, and a show at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam. The completed project was presented in Tabet’s first major institutional solo at the Kunstverein in Hamburg in November 2017.
Exhibition runs through August 4th, 2018.
April 26 (Thursday) - August 4 (Saturday)
