Huguette Caland: Faces and Places
August 2 - November 30
This exhibition is Huguette Caland’s first solo museum exhibition in the Arab region, featuring six decades of paintings, drawings, caftans, smocks and sculptures, including a selection of never before exhibited works. Born in the cosmopolitan city of Beirut in 1931, Caland was the daughter of the first president of the independent Republic of Lebanon, but defied social expectations by pursuing a career as an artist. The exhibition is organised around three different geographical locations that define Caland’s personal and professional journey: Beirut, Paris and California.
Curator: Mohammed Rashid Al Thani with Noora Abdulmajeed
Please note that tickets must be purchased online in advance of your visit.
