Location: Paris

Fury, femme artiste underground et incontournable de la scène contemporaine française depuis les années 80, se penche, depuis 2009, sur l’utilisation du WEB. L'exposition "Data World, Welcome in Dystopia" réunit des oeuvres qui illustrent une dissipation graduelle du corporel dans le virtuel, jusqu’à la vision dystopique en noir et blanc de l’installation "Behind Data » dont le potentiel muséal est manifeste. Cette nouvelle exposition de FURY précède la publication de sa monographie à laquelle collabore François Michaud et qui a reçu le soutien de l’ADAGP et de la fondation agnès b. __ Fury, "queen of underground" since the 80's, has been working on the use of the WEB since 2009. The exhibition "Data World, Welcome in Dystopia" brings together works that illustrate a gradual dissipation of the physical in the virtual, to the dystopian black and white vision of the installation "Behind Data" whose museum potential is obvious.

Bonjour Beirut- The Beirut Art Scene


August 21st to September 4th , 2020

Location: online exhibition on Artsy.com

Mark Hachem Gallery launches an online collective exhibition on Artsy, a tribute to the Lebanese art scene. Lebanon has always been prized... an Eden that collapses under its own beauty, a forest of cedar trees cut down by those who protect it. But the Cedar sprouts into saplings tended by the moisture of hope with each catastrophe. Beirut sits as a jewel on the Mediterranean, a city of happiness and creativity. It’s a phoenix in continuous rise, it denies its naysayers, it gathers humans into its beauty and energy, it beckons your call.

Hussein Madi, painter, sculptor and engraver, born in 1938 in Chebaa in South Lebanon, is one of the Middle East’s most famous artists. " here’s the mystery of creation that inspired my art. There is a unity at the beginning that reproduces with differences; type, number, colour and dimension. All things that are born and die respond to these four categories. The repetition in my paintings is there on purpose and is a way to honour the creator. ” Madi in L’Orient le jour. 30 July 2019. ___ Mark Hachem a le plaisir et l’honneur de présenter un ensemble rare de peintures et sculptures de Hussein Madi.

Né en 1938 à Chebaa, au Sud-Liban, Hussein Madi, peintre, sculpteur et graveur est l'un des artistes les plus célèbres du Moyen orient. « ...voilà le mystère de la création qui a inspiré mon art. Il existe au départ une unité qui se reproduit dans une différence de genre, de nombre, de couleur, et dans une différence de dimension. La répétition n’est pas un hasard dans mes toiles, mais une façon d’honorer le créateur.

RETRO-PER-SPECTIVE by MARWAN CHAMAA


November 20th - December 8th, 2018

Mark Hachem Gallery - Beirut is delighted to present “RETRO-PER-SPECTIVE”, a solo exhibition by artist Marwan Chamaa, featuring his various interpretations of pop culture through select pieces past and present. Throughout his career, Marwan Chamaa’s art has fundamentally been his view of the world with an ironic and sometimes sarcastic undertone. Marwan, who has been painting for over 3 decades, embodies the spirit of a global citizen without overlooking his Middle Eastern roots. This is translated in his art and lifestyle that bridges the gap between East and West. The physical world is his muse. The French magazine, St. Tropez House, dubbed Marwan in their August 5, 2014 issue as the “King of Middle Eastern neo-pop art”, when referring to his series “Caramels, Superheroes, fried eggs and chocolates” which was then displayed in a gallery in Saint-Tropez. Accomplished New York photographer Carlos René Pérez considered his collaboration with Chamaa on the series “Unplugged” as some sort of a revelation. He says: “Uncertain of its ultimate direction I was somewhat circumspect, and curious as well, as to where this project might lead. Exceeding my expectations Marwan’s extraordinary paintings and his hyper-visual narrative led me back to my doorstep, my hometown, my New York City. Marwan Chamaa’s, Unplugged, has embraced NYC as a second home with all the warts and the foul scents it comes with. Ultimately my collaboration with Marwan teaches me that the mystery and beauty of New York City is only limited to the imagination of the artist who attempts to define it.” On his upcoming show “Retro-per-spective” Marwan explains his view on the concept saying “I’m supposed to write something witty about this exposition, about me painting for over 30 years, why my surroundings inspire me, about my love for pop-culture, my fascination with consumerism, my addiction to life, my love for kitsch, and about so many things that make me sound artistic... well, I’m not going to do that. You have to make up your own mind about my art, all I can say is: today is a perfect day “ The focus of RETRO-PER-SPECTIVE is Marwan’s recent work but it will also include some of his RETRO work dating back 30 years. The exposition will show his PER-SPECTIVE of pop-culture. Marwan Chamaa was born in Beirut in 1964 and has spent most of his adult life in Germany, Lebanon, and the USA. He studied art at the American University of Beirut, Beirut University College, and at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC. Chamaa participated in several group shows, art fairs, and auctions. His work has been displayed in Lebanon, France, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait and is being collected all over the globe.

SENSIBLE EXPRESSION BY ALFRED BASBOUS


October 25 - November 20, 2018

Location: Mark Hachem Gallery - Beirut

Mark Hachem Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of relief and sculpture by artist Alfred Basbous (1924 – 2006). A major pioneer of Modernist sculpture in the Middle East, Basbous drew on the influence of Jean Arp, Constantin Brâncuși and Henry Moore to create stone and bronze sculptures of often monumental proportions. The exhibition brings together a series of sculptures from the 1960's to the 2000's, which demonstrate Basbous’ exploration of the relationship between form and material. A selection of Basbous’ preparatory drawings which reveal his approach to relief and sculpture are also exhibited. Sculptor Alfred Basbous (1924 - 2006) was born in Rachana, Lebanon. His works express a lifelong exploration of the human form and its abstract properties. Throughout his life, Basbous won many awards including the Prix de l'Orient in Beirut in 1963 and the prize for the Alexandria Biennale in 1974. Upon his death, the President of the Lebanese Republic awarded him the Medal of the Lebanese Order of Merit in Gold. A national stamp of Alfred Basbous and his two brothers Michel and Youssef, also sculptors, was released in 2011 by the Lebanese State as a tribute to their contribution to Lebanese culture. The works of Alfred Basbous are part of the permanent collection of the Alfred Basbous Foundation in Rachana, Lebanon and are featured in many private and public collections, including the Musée Rodin, Paris, the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, the Hakone Open-Air Museum in Japan and the Modern and Contemporary Art Museum (MACAM) in Lebanon, among others. His monumental works are present in the public areas of Beirut and many other Lebanese cities.
