Curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath discuss the work and practices of the artists included in The Mosaic Rooms group exhibition I Spy With My Little Eye…


Curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath discuss the work and practices of the artists included in The Mosaic Rooms group exhibition I Spy With My Little Eye…

I Spy with My Little Eye… explores a shift in artistic practice within a new generation of artists connected to Beirut. It showcases the rise of an exciting emerging movement with new formal and semantic concerns, through the work of artists; Caline Aoun, George Awde, Mirna Bamieh, Nour Bishouty, Pascal Hachem, Cherbil-Joseph H. Boutros, Aya Haidar, Geörgette Power, Joe Namy, Stephanie Saade, Siska, Lara Tabet and Tala Worrell.

Sam and Till will offer further insight into the practices of the selected artists at this special curator led tour of the exhibition. They will also discuss what this exhibition might reveal about this new generation, and how the emergence of their work marks a move from the generation of post- civil war Lebanese artists who have received such international interest.

Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath co-founded Art Reoriented, a multi-disciplinary curatorial platform operating from Munich and New York in 2009. Some of their recent museum exhibitions include Mona Hatoum: Turbulence at Mathaf, Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha (2014), and Songs of Loss and Songs of Love: Oum Kulthoum and Lee Nan-Young at the Gwangju Museum of Art in South Korea (2014). In 2013, they were the curators of the Lebanese Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale, and curated the comprehensive retrospective Paul Guiragossian: The Human Condition at the Beirut Exhibition Center. Bardaouil and Fellrath curated Mathaf’s inaugural contemporary art exhibition Told Untold Retold (2010 – 2011). Their critically acclaimed traveling exhibition Tea with Nefertiti was on view at Mathaf (2012), followed by the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA) in Paris, France (2013), the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM) in Valencia, Spain (2013 – 2014) and the State Museum of Egyptian Art in Munich, Germany (2014).
