Dinner and a conversation with Beirut

10 Jul 13

For the month of July, co-director Jens Maier-Rothe and curator Antonia Alampi, relocate Beirut’s activities to Derry. CCA and Beirut co-host a dinner and a conversation.

Beirut is a new art initiative and exhibition space that considers institution building as a curatorial act. Their activities are centered around hosting artists, projects and other institutions (locally, regionally, internationally) that wish to engage with similar questions we share concerning politics, economy, education, ecology and the arts. The space, a late 1940’s three-storey villa surrounded by a little garden, is located in the Agouza neighborhood in Cairo, Egypt.
