We have news! AD Leb is a new digital platform and pop-up gallery dedicated to supporting and showcasing the work of Lebanese and international visual artists and designers, both local and international. Operating as a gallery without walls, we stage exhibitions in alternative and unconventional spaces in Lebanon and further afield.

AD Leb is the pilot project of Gaïa Fodoulian, who was killed in the Beirut port explosion of August 4th, 2020. Gaïa’s mother, Annie Vartivarian, an art patron and gallerist, spearheads the project realizing this vision as a tribute to her daughter. Six months after the explosion, we are launching AD Leb as a non-profit, the proceeds of which will go towards the Gaïa Fodoulian Foundation, an organization that cares for animals in need and provides support for animal rescuers.

Our first pop-up exhibition, titled “Everyone is the creator of one’s own faith,” will take place in March 2021. The exhibition will feature both newly commissioned and existing works by Samer Bou Rjeily, Karen Chekerdjian, Hatem Imam, Sirine Fattouh, Gaïa Fodoulian, Paul Kaloustian, Nathalie Khayat, Hussein Nassereddine, and Caroline Tabet. We’re happy to be working with Ghaith Abi Ghanem and Jad Melki on the exhibition design, at a location that is to be announced soon.
