Cycles of Collapsing Progress
2018 | Rashid Karami International Fair | Curated by Karina el Helou and Anissa Touati Corporation | Tripoli, LB

Through contemporary art, the run-down concrete structures of the Rashid Karami Fair in Tripoli conceived by Oscar Niemeyer, considered one of the most important legacies of modernist architecture in the Middle East, were placed in dialogue with the citadel of Tripoli, a monument to layers of history. The two locations current states provoked reflections, in the context of the exhibition, on cyclical time and the cycles of collapse.
