Woman in Contemporary Arts
Aug. 10 – Sept. 30 in Art Lounge Maasser Beiteddine
 
An exhibition on Woman depiction in works of arts by more than 30 local and international artists Woman has always been an immense source of inspiration for artists throughout the history of art. From the Italian Renaissance, with Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Da Vinci Mona Lisa and more recently Vermeer’s Girl with pearl earring, to 20th cent.Dali’s Gala, Picasso’s Dora Maar or Warhol’s Marilyn; Woman has always exerted an amazing sense of fascination, admiration and in many instances obsession for the artists who chose to depict them.. Reasons why artists choose to portray women in their arts are plentiful; some for sheer feminine inspirational beauty, others to re-create imaginary forms of their wives or lovers, some artistic forms of expressions lead the artist to transform or disfigure his beloved, some seek to demystify their fantasies. Art Lounge chose to celebrate Woman in arts once again through the works of Lebanese and international artists. More than 30 artists and 60 works in paintings, sculpture, photography, films will be presented. Femme Fatale, mother figure, muse, lover, sister, star Icon, Diva or Goddess… Women will always be the definitive muse. Woman in Arts is an open exhibition, artists are welcome to submit their works through email info@artlounge.net “Woman in Arts” exhibition will open August 10th till September 30st in Art Lounge (Maasser) Beiteddine, Silk factory. Opening days: Friday & Saturday from 3p.m. to 9p.m.
