Here is the schedule:

—Beirut, Bashoura Public Library
15. 2.10 until 27.2.10

—Baalbeck Public Library
15. 3.10 until 27.3.10

Two major concerns about illustration in Lebanon are tackled in the creation of this exhibition. The first one is to celebrate illustration in the space of the visual arts and give visibility to the processes of illustration through sketching, researching and experimentation. The second one is to challenge notions of illustration and go beyond current “publishable” approaches.
