Abed Al Kadiri’s Danse Macabre at Mina Image Center

Danse Macabre, From Urban Perils to Raving Revelry
By Abed Al Kadiri

February 8 – March 21, 2024
At Mina Image Center


The exhibition delves into the intricate relationships between dance, trauma, and belonging in contemporary Lebanon. Far from being a stark contrast to the political turmoil and haunting legacies of death since the civil war. Al Kadiri presents these elements as integral responses, serving as acts of survival and healing—a collaborative practice in the face of the nation’s societal and institutional collapse.
