Over the past thirteen years, Beirut Art Center has become a key contributor to the artistic and intellectual life of Lebanon and the region. As a landmark space, its presence is even more relevant in times of uncertainty and collapse, as cultural practices are always endangered in such situations. Thus, its role as a platform of experimentation, conversation and gathering is even more crucial and invaluable. As a non-profit association, Beirut Art Center relies mainly on donations from individuals, private institutions and sponsors as well as grants from foundations. Beirut Art Center is holding its sixth fundraising auction, the proceeds from which will go toward securing a part of the funds required for the operating costs and upcoming activities. This year’s auction will be in collaboration with Ans Azura, a highly curated digital platform offering fresh-to-market, museum-quality works by renowned and emerging artists, where the next generation of collectors can engage with art and learn about collecting. By participating in the auction, you will not only be acquiring a great artwork, but you will also be supporting Beirut Art Center and its initiatives.
