Home Workspace Program - Open Studios
HWP Student exhibiting their latest projects
Following 11 months of intensive workshops, seminars, lectures and one-on-one meetings with artists and art critiques from around the world, the participants in Ashkal Alwan’s Home workspace program will be exhibiting their projects at Ashkal Alwan’s space. The open studios were launched on July 18th and will remain open until the 31st of July 2012.
The open studios feature the work of 12 participants in this first edition of home workspace, Ashkal Alwan’s art study program in Beirut: Mohamed Abdelkarim, Noor Abu Arafeh, Roy Dib, Maria Elena Fantoni, Sarah Farahat, Raphael Fleuriet, Samar Kanafani, Mahmoud Khaled, Joe Namy, Haig Papazian, Tamara al Samerraei, and Saba Innab whom project was funded by HBS.
Innab describes her project as “an attempt to explain the impossibility of building because of the impossibility of dwelling, which is more of a universal dilemma in our times; Humans can no longer dwell! However, the project suggests another level of this impossibility, by suggesting a meaning of the" landlessness" particular to Palestinians- especially outside of Palestine- a concept that is linked directly to time and living in a temporary state that gradually transforms itself to the permanent.”
The different cultural, social, political and artistic backgrounds of the participants are celebrated through the variety of artistic disciplines and forms the show offers.
