Opening at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art on 17 March is Beirut and the Golden Sixties: A Manifesto of Fragility, a multidisciplinary exhibition co-curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath that revisits a turbulent chapter in the development of modernism in Beirut, spanning the 1958 Lebanon Crisis to 1975 Lebanese Civil War.
As part of the Beirut and the Golden Sixties: A Manifesto of Fragility exhibition, a public panel entitled Transnational Alliances and Struggles: Beirut in the Archives will take place. This panel will take the life and work of Simone Baltaxé Martayan—an artist straddling various commitments and crossing over multiple identities and social milieus—as a starting point for a conversation on transnational alliances and struggles in Beirut, and the region more broadly. Countering the glamorizing myth of a golden age, the speakers will address the role of archival practices in the face of historical erasure.
