----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beirut Art Center invites you to the opening of the 8th edition of Exposure, its annual exhibition for young and emerging artists from Lebanon or residing in Lebanon. 

This new edition of Exposure, entitled metabolism, transposes a notion attributed to the body and its survival into the realm of art. To think of art as metabolization is to think of one’s practice as a series of voluntary transformations that produces unpredictable results. 

One can also metabolize experience, facts, current issues, or larger questions by creating conditions from which new aspects surface. It is therefore largely about form, which is understood here as a relation between visibility and the gesture that allows it or between subject matter and the changes it undergoes within the modalities of its formulation. 

To produce form is to produce a living organism; it acts on objects, materials, and events by integrating the unforeseen and therefore engages processes which art shares with science: experimentation, discovery and invention.
