The Art Newspaper: Private museum of Arab art in the pipeline for Beirut

In development: a new private museum for Arab art in Beirut (and consequently, an online database for the holdings of same. In fact, the database will be available before the museum.) “With works spanning 150 years, the collection is mostly devoted to painting but also includes photography, sculpture, ceramics, video and conceptual art…. Ahead of the 2020 opening, the foundation is looking for other ways to share its art with the public. A collection database is expected to go online by the end of the year and [Basel] Dalloul hopes to stage pop-up exhibitions in some of downtown Beirut’s vacant buildings next year.”
