Revenge Collective Exhibition at Smogallery for Beirut Design Week
As part of Beirut Design Week, Smogallery launched their very own Revenge Collective Exhibition on Friday, June 5, 2015. I had the chance to attend and film this enormous show of young talent with the ITN crew (more details on this short film are coming up soon).
The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to reveal a body of works by 10 selected young artists and designers, where they interpreted the theme of ‘revenge’ in a multidisciplinary aspect, according to each creator‘s whims, psyches, fantasies, personality and inspirations.
The versatility of the concept and its manichaeistic reality are the playground onto which creativity crystallizes. Therefore, the designers were challenged to transcend the theme beyond the face value of it. From intimate to violent, the show takes you into unchartered territories proper to each one of the participating artists.
Featuried artists: Georges Mohasseb, Ewa Szumilas, Fadi Mansour, Richard Yasmine, Hania Rayess, Celine & Tatiana Stephan, Cyrille Najjar, Carla Baz, Georges Amatoury, Lara El Khoury.
The exhibition will run until the 26th of June 2015 at Smogallery, make sure to pass by!
Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek from the opening night in addition to product shots of what you will find on display currently at Smogallery:
