Beirut Art Residency is a non-profit organization that offers a two-month residency program for international and local artists from all artistic backgrounds. On April 18th, BAR opened its doors to the public for a one-evening exhibition showcasing the final projects of its three most recent residents. Each artist demonstrated their own take on Beirut, portraying the city in fresh and innovative ways.Italian artist Valentina Medda exhibited "S'ultimo Attitu" ("The Last Lamentation" in Sardinian), a video performance piece accompanied by photos and a map of the Mediterranean. The work of Ukrainian artist Daniil Galkin is inspired by Beirut's derelict City Centre Cinema, a landmark sometimes called "the Egg".Tracing its history back to pre-war Beirut, Galkin explored Joseph Philippe Karam's original plan for the structure. Iranian-born artist, Sara Ghahremani's semi-abstract paintings are inspired by the architecture, photographs and vintage posters of Beirut.The colors of Beirut also had an impact on her work.
