"2012" is an exhibition for three collections of paintings that were created during 2012 in Syria: “Once Upon a Time,” “On Top of Torture,” and “Transformation."
The paintings are an attempt to monitor and bring out the harshness of a changing reality in Syria, played out during that short interval of the revolution’s timeframe. Distortions in people, cities, and even nature, are represented in distorted representations.
The paintings have recently arrived in Beirut from Syria, and thus now the first opportunity to exhibit them as a collection.
