Event Description

Lebanese-American artist Nabil Nahas, whose work has been exhibited all over the world, brings his striking, large-scale works—including a few new pieces—to FIAF’s Gallery.

Nahas’s pieces reflect both western modernism and classic Islamic art, and explore the concept of order emerging from disorder through vibrant color, texture, patterns, and abstract images. Inspired by the beauty of nature and the rich complexity of Middle Eastern culture, Nahas uses natural elements such as trees—in particular the cedar, symbolizing Lebanon—to present his personal vision of his homeland.

Gallery Hours
Tue–Fri, 11am–6pm
Sat, 11am–5pm
Sun & Mon, closed
Free and open to the public

World Nomads, FIAF’s annual exploration of transculturalism in the 21st century, is intended as a forum for dialogue between cultures. It returns this May for its third edition to focus on Lebanon, a country whose rich heritage has long captivated imaginations around the world.
