The Exhibition begins on January 7, 2010 and ends January 30th, 2010
The events of May 2008 in Beirut opened a deep wound in the memories of artist and poet Charles Chahwan. It reminded him of the times where militia men used to control the streets and impose their law of fear and power. This new series focuses on this topic in a very whimsical manner, mixing music with sounds of bombing, portraying fighters as rock stars, and transforming a dreadful sad situation into a colorful comic strip.
A very cynical way to criticize a society in crisis.
