ArteEast is pleased to present Omar Mismar in our October 2016 Artist Spotlight. Omar recently moved to New York City for a fellowship in the Whitney ISP, where he is generously supported by a grant (fiscally sponsored through ArteEast) from the Violet Jabbara Trust.
ArteEast’s Residency initiatives places MENA-based artists in prestigious, career-building, international residencies with our partners throughout the United States. Each of these residencies is strategically conceived to help support artists through various stages and challenges within their career, and to create opportunities for U.S.-based audiences, gallerists, curators, collectors, museum professionals, and artists to encounter and engage with our residents and their work.
ArteEast congratulates our residency alumni Dalia Baassiri and Lara Tabet for being among the artists whose work will be shown at the Lebanese Foundation for the National Library! In a collaboration with Galerie Janine Rubeiz, the Foundation presents "Bitasarrof", an exhibition that gathers the work of 55 renowned Lebanese artists, launching Saturday, October 15th and on display through Sunday, November 13th.
