In the next meetup of “Hiwar Art Club” we are pleased to welcome Lebanese artist Fadia Ahmad for a talk and tour around her exhibition “Beyrouth | Beirut” held at The Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts where the exhibition includes a large collection of photographs in a large size devoted to the city of Beirut and its residents the artist has portrayed her since 2003 as an ongoing dialogue with the city of Beirut, which she wanders daily with her camera to photograph in a way that reflects her artistic and human adventures with a city where she finds fragmentation, difference and feeling.

Fadia Ahmad was born in 1975 in Alicante, Spain. She returns to Lebanon in 1991, after a long exile and undertakes studies at IESAV in Beirut. Studying film production and cinematography, she also masters the art of photography moving subsequently to Sub-saharian Africa, where she worked at the family business, she simultaneously pursues her artistic endeavors. She later returns to Lebanon in 2002, and undertakes in the following year the Beyrouth | Beirut series. Fadia Ahmad resorts to photography in her artistic practice. She creates series of portraits and landscapes particularly in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Engaged in humanitarian issues, she releases two series, photography & video, about refugees in Lebanon (Camps; It could be you). The artist currently lives and works between Beirut and Paris.
