"Helvetic Zebra," a monthlong exhibition accompanied by a week of performances, workshops and talks, aims to seek common ground between the contemporary art scenes in Switzerland and Lebanon.Curated by Donatella Bernardi, a Swiss artist and digital media professor at Stockholm's Royal Institute of Art, the project stemmed from STATION co-founder Nabil Canaan's desire to explore his Swiss-Lebanese background. The 22 books awarded in 2014 will be on show as part of the exhibition, along with the 2013 catalog, which was designed by Maximage, a duo consisting of graphic designers David Keshavjee and Julien Tavelli.Six artists, including Bernardi, will also be exhibiting work. The Lebanese scene is being represented by painter Oussama Baalbaki, whose work Bernardi discovered while enjoying a drink at Abou Elie, a communist bar in Caracas. Decrauzat's framed screen prints will be offset by Bernardi's own contribution, two wall paintings inspired by British artist Bridget Riley.
