about APEAL

In a press conference that was held on Wednesday, at Hotel Albergo - Achrafieh, the Association for the Promotion & Exhibition of the Arts in Lebanon (APEAL) announced the launch of the preparations of the Lebanese pavilion for the Biennale Arte, 2013.

Founded in 2008, APEAL is a non-profit organization dedicated to showcasing and encouraging Lebanese artists by projecting their artwork beyond conventional borders and onto a larger screen. APEAL is equally dedicated to the launching of exchange programs between artists from the Lebanese scene and counterparts elsewhere, from universities and art academies. It is also committed to granting scholarships to promising
talent, and contributing to the formation of trained curators and art professionals. By creating this window, APEAL is helping nurture the seeds of Lebanon's artistic potential and preserving its cultural fabric in a vibrant, forward looking post conflict society. APEAL has showcased the creativity and vitality of its established and emerging artists in two major exhibitions in 2010 and 2011 in Washington and London.
The first, Convergence: New Art from Lebanon took place at the American University Museum, Katzen Arts Center in Washington, D.C. and the second was featured at the Royal College of Art in London.
