From February 16, 2022 to April 16, 2022

Galerie Tanit, Mar Mikhael, Beirut, Lebanon

We chose to start this celebratory year with an exhibition that orchestrates the voices of 18 artists where the artworks reveal trajectories that shape our imagination and mold our personalities.
How and why our world works?
What is the origin of things?
How do we relate to each other?
What affects us?
Complex concepts that we attempt to explain by using common narratives, personifications, and allegories.
Stories that develop and spread.
Names, phrases, events, real or fictional, transmitted from one generation to the other. They all influence our culture and traditions.
Myths, legends, and folktales have always provided a backdrop for art. Stories that remain captivating, surprising, exciting, or even scary inspired the most bewildering creations.
Kan Ya Makan is a multitude of presences: poems that reflect on life, and existence; Songs on human instincts; Rituals, religious myths, landmarks, and events that carve our collective memories; Wonders that tickle our imagination.
Through this show, we also share with you our colorful journey, one that is filled with amazing art, projects, collaborations, and acquisitions.

So let us tell you a story…
