Last year's edition of the Beirut Art Fair was dominated by local galleries, an imbalance redressed somewhat by the South East Asia Pavilion.Scheduled for Sept. 18-21, the fifth edition of the fair will feature an Indian Pavilion, curated by Paris-based Fabrice Bousteau. An independent art critic and curator, Bousteau co-curated a major exhibition focusing on art from the subcontinent at Paris' Centre Pompidou in 2011, entitled "Paris-Delhi-Bombay: India Through the Eyes of Indian and French Artists". BAF may not be able to provide Bousteau with 2,500 square meters of exhibition space, but the pavilion is set to match the Pompidou show in the number of artists represented. Although no names have been confirmed, the curator hopes to include work by around 30 artists.
