Marwan Rechmaoui: Images, Texts, and Conversations

Studio @ and the Middle East Institute at Columbia University

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013, 6pm

Free and open to the public

Born in Beirut, Marwan Rechmaoui's work focuses on urban dynamics, demographics and behaviours. He uses industrial materials such as concrete, rubber, tar and glass to create tactile works on a large scale, many of which focus on the historics of spatial violence in the Lebanese civil war.

About Studio @

Studio @ is a program curated by Rosalind C. Morris, and is sponsored by the Departmenet of Anthropology and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society. This event is also made possible by contributions from Alwan for the Arts.

About Marwan Rechmaoui

Marwan Rechmaoui is a Lebanese artist of Palestinian origin, who lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon. As an influential, politically engaged and unique artist, his work is marked by depth and verisimilitude. Rechmaoui is best known for his sculptural works replicating city buildings and the topography of Beirut.

The work of Rechmaoui, though sculptural, three-dimensional and industrial in the raw material it employs for its finished objects, it is never intrusive rather, it emotes a great deal of inclusiveness and tenderness.
