This exhibition uncovers the different facets of Nahr Beirut (Beirut River) with its recent and rapid transformations from dumping ground to a place scheduled for ambitious development.
Born in Lebanon, visual artist and filmmaker Lamia Joreige RI’17 uses archival documents and elements of fiction to reflect on history and its possible narration, and the relation between individual stories and collective memory. After the River, a three-channel video installation, invites reflection on the interwoven narratives of the river, its surroundings, and the people who live and work around it.
