The Restoration Lab and the Artists in Residency Program in the Lebanese Public School System were publicly unveiled at the fair, drawing attention to the work BeMA has been quietly doing in the past few years.Held under the theme of "Shaping Common Spaces," BeMA, in partnership with the Education Ministry, has completed its second year of the program in 10 public schools across the Lebanon, and is launching its third year in October to cover a total of 13 schools.The collection suffered during the Civil War due to poor storage, with many paintings left in uncontrolled conditions that can be detrimental to paint and canvas. The newly restored works are now being stored correctly, until the project is completed and they are able to be displayed at BeMA when it opens in three years.
Picturing pines and posies
An homage to a nearby homeland
Capturing women’s quiet courage
