Splash of hope Etel Ad­nan’s up­lift­ing works on show at Sfeir-Sem­ler gallery

The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - ARTS & CULTURE -

BEIRUT: The wall­pa­per “Le Soleil Tou­jours” (“The Sun Al­ways”), Etel Ad­nan’s self-con­sciously op­ti­mistic de­pic­tion of our near­est star, is among the works on show in “The Up­ris­ing of Col­ors.” Up at Sfeir-Sem­ler gallery through April 11, this over­view of Ad­nan’s sprawl­ing mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary prac­tice — sam­pling her po­etry, small format paint­ings, large-scale works, lep­orel­los and ta­pes­tries — seeks to be a mod­est con­tri­bu­tion to the sus­tain­abil­ity of Beirut’s arts sec­tor, “of­fer­ing a splash of hope amid the cur­rent se­vere po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic cri­sis Le­banon is wit­ness­ing.” –
