It features 19 painters and sculptors from Lebanon and across the entire region.Artspace artistic director and curator Ameera Kawash, who has coordinated many of its shows, explained that while many exhibitions evoke symbolic themes from personal perspectives, this show was motivated primarily by color.As a retrospective of visual communication, this exhibition suggests more depth than color alone. From the expressive faces in Anas Albraehe's figures, which mirror the gaze of the painter, to the bronze masks of Mohammed Murad al-Obaidi, to the faceless entities of Mona Nahle's canvases – the show reflects the art historical influences of abstract expressionism, impressionism, surrealism, social realism, cubism, and a myriad of other movements. Kawash clarified the ways in which some of these works play off one another.
