"Rebirth of a Nation" is a commemorative group show marking 100 years since the beginning of the Armenian genocide.Organized by Solidere and the Armenian Genocide Centennial Central Committee of Lebanon, in cooperation with the Zalka-based Noah's Ark Art Gallery, the exhibition aims to explore themes of genocide and rebirth. The former is mostly encapsulated in older works, by artists living prior to, during or soon after the events of the genocide. Inside, a selection of paintings and sculptures on loan from private collectors and the Yerevan-based Bardzr Arvest Gallery provides a sense of the breadth and diversity of work by Armenian artist living in Armenia and the diaspora.Some of the paintings chart events prior to the Armenian Genocide of 1915 .A painting by famous marine artist Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky – born to an Armenian family in 1817 and based in Crimea, where he worked as the main painter for the Russian army – dates from 1897 . Four modernist works by Paul Guiragossian, perhaps the most famous Lebanese-Armenian artist, are scattered at intervals throughout the show.Several hyper-detailed paintings represent the distinctive Armenian surrealist school.
