Clearly a metropolis the size of this one can never have too many art fairs.Later rebranded as the Beirut Art Fair ("Beirut's exclusive Contemporary Art fair," as its website puts it), it flogs all manner of visual art and photography.Since Wednesday, the space has hosted a third marketplace for contemporary art objects: the Contemporary Beirut Global Art Fair.The new fair includes work by artists from Lebanon, Syria, Germany, China, Japan, Tanzania and Senegal, working in media ranging from paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations. Though the fair includes displays from various galleries from around town, Contemporary Beirut also includes a few outstanding works from artists never before exhibited in Lebanon.The talented German artist Pola Brandle is represented by four mixed-media depictions of women. The works on display in Contemporary Beirut offer a passable overview of today's global art scene.
