A Place in Between invitation

‘A Place in Between’ at Espacio Gallery showcased work from a hugely diverse national and international group of artists, in a variety of interpretations and mediums reflecting moments in the artists’ lives when they found themselves in movement – either through space or state of mind. The interface between life experience and the artistic process can be a strange mysterious world of half glimpsed effects and ideas, but this is also the place in between life events where creative sparks are born. The exhibition combines photography, printmaking, painting, 3D and mixed media.

Discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.

Following in the tradition of 17th Century Parisian salons, where intellectual minds gathered in the homes of beautiful and educated Salonnières to share and increase knowledge through discussion, Le Salon de Lahd celebrated 10 years of MENASA creativity in a unique 21st Century ‘Salon’.

Suspending Light invitation

‘Suspending Light’ is the theme of the duo exhibition organised by Lahd Gallery, representing mixed media artist and photographer George H Lewis and Amsterdam-based Rademakers Gallery, representing photographer Annelies Damen. Suspending light is the art of freezing light at a point of time. Light being the fastest travelling thing on earth, suspending it in time to show a particular perspective on a person, object or scene requires true skill. This is something that artists, George Lewis and Annelies Damen have perfectly mastered in their latest collections. Both artists seek to stop light and reveal the truth in that very moment their pieces were formed.

Beauty Laid Bare invitation

Since the beginning of time, we have lived in a world where expressing female beauty is considered a male prerogative. Male artists have carved our perception of the female form throughout history in the same way fashion defines women’s perceptions of their own selves in our current society. Lahd Gallery and Roberta Moore Contemporary are bringing together two important contemporary artists, Suhair Sibai and Iva Troj to meet for the first time, in a joint exhibition that reveals the true story through their new works. Both artists offer different perspectives on the world, through female eyes. Sibai focuses more on expression, whereas Troj examines the female form. Their foci are different, yet they come together to offer viewers a more complete picture of femininity.
