Taymour Grahne seeped into the online consciousness via his popular blog "Art of the Mid East," a source of up-to-date art news from the region launched in early 2011 .Since the inaugural exhibition, a solo show featuring paintings and works on paper by Iranian artist Nicky Nodjoumi, the Taymour Grahne Gallery has exhibited the work of half a dozen regional artists, many of whom have never previously exhibited in the U.S., as well as hosting exhibitions by Ireland's Ciaran Murphy and American Corey Escoto.The gallery's current exhibition and first group show, "Thin Skin: Six Artists from Beirut," showcases the work of six Lebanese artists represented locally by Agial Art Gallery founder Saleh Barakat, who was invited to curate the New York exhibition.Upcoming collective exhibitions are set to feature work by some of Lebanon's conceptual artists – including filmmaker-artist and Beirut Art Center co-founder Lamia Joreige and artist, curator and writer Haig Aivazian.The gallery's regular program of exhibitions, discussion and tours is to be supplemented by a series of monographs on Grahne's roster of artists, beginning with a book on Palestinian-Kuwaiti artist Tarek Al-Ghoussein, set for release during the artist's solo exhibition at the gallery in September.
