This event has finished
MACAM is pleased to announce the opening of a special retrospective focusing on Dorothy Salhab Kazemi’s short but outstanding career. Widely regarded as Lebanon’s first Modern ceramicist, Kazemi’s work stands out for having combined tradition and modernity, craft and art, the orient and the occident, the East and the West. She merged the abstract, born out of the scientific age from the West with the organic abstract from the Far East in a personal synthesis. Among the 71 pieces on show are plates, cups, bowls, vases, vessels, kettles and 16 sculptures the artist created up to her premature death in 1990.
