Pioneering the art scene for decades, Galerie Janine Rubeiz, under the direction of Nadine Majdalani Begdache, has witnessed and documented the dramatic socio-political changes that have swept Beirut since 1993. From the post-civil war era, passing through more prosperous periods, to our current days, the artworks of countless Lebanese and international artists have adorned the walls of the gallery, engaging the public, provoking discussions, and serving as loud and unbiased testimonials to major events.

For its 30th anniversary, Galerie Janine Rubeiz is pleased to launch “Encounters 2023”, an initiative that is a form of cross-historical dialogue between past and present creations. It will highlight key moments from previous exhibitions, with artworks and content that remain relevant to our present day.

To celebrate this milestone, the gallery is launching a juried open call, aimed at emerging talents, for proposals drawing inspiration from significant and intriguing creations by Etel Adnan, Shafic Abboud, Yvette Achkar, Huguette Caland, Joseph Chahfé, Bassam Geitani, Laure Ghorayeb, Joanna Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Joseph Harb, Lamia Joreige, Samir Khaddaje, Ibrahim Marzouk, Jamil Molaeb, Zad Moultaka, Aref El Rayess, Antonio Segui, and Hanibal Srouji.

  • This project is conceptualized and curated by Manar Ali Hassan.
