AUB Byblos Bank Art Gallery, Beirut, Lebanon

Art / World / Disaster was conceived and organized by U.S. based Mexican artist and Duke University professor Pedro Lasch specifically for the AUB Byblos Bank Art Gallery and the broader artistic community of Beirut. Large-scale banners produced by Lasch are hung in the vaulted arches and windows of the AUB Byblos Bank Art Gallery, as well as in other venues in the city. Inside the gallery, the banners are accompanied by the works of local artists, activists, and AUB students, all of them produced and selected according to their resonance with the theme of this exhibition. The project is accompanied by a series of workshops organized by Lasch at AUB, as well as two public discussions.
