Fund our upcoming collective exhibition in Beirut!
In 2020, in the context of the pandemic of covid 19, the process of selling and buying art has become immensely virtual. During this terrible year that Lebanon faced, notably after the explosion of August 4, a female artist and gallerist, Dzovig Arnelian, who was pursuing her Master’s degree in Plastic Arts has launched an innovative online platform titled “Arneli Art Gallery” in order to promote emerging Lebanese and Middle Eastern artists. The aim of Arneli Art gallery is to open a door to extremely gifted artists to be explored by art collectors and art institutions, from all over the Globe. What makes this gallery a pioneer is that it does not only help promote thought provoking artworks but, also guides fresh graduates in becoming living artists. After several successful exhibitions in Beit Misk and Zico house (Lebanon), and collaborations with Bloom Gallery (Spain) and JAALA organization (Japan) in 2021-22, Arneli Art Gallery is launching a new exhibition on April 28, 2023, at Rebirth Beirut in Gemmayze, a location nowadays known as the symbol of the Lebanese resilience. This collective exhibition will showcase the works of 14 emerging and promising artists. We are currently collecting funds and looking for support from individuals who have faith in our mission and vision to move forward with this exhibition. To implement this project an amount of 3,725$ is needed. This amount will be used for the rental of the venue and its services, artworks stretching and handling as well as a proper marketing campaign to effectively promote the exhibition. We know we have a long road ahead to reach our objective, but we have full trust that with your support we will be able to give emerging artists a chance to shine. DONATE NOW to Arneli Art Gallery team and trust that your support will make a significant impact! This exhibition will be curated by Manar Ali Hassan and advised by Mr. Elie Bourjeily.

Voice for the Voiceless
For more information, please contact me: +961 76447506 Gender hierarchy in Lebanon silences women and prevents them from identifying their rights and expressing their dignity. The reality is that marginalized genders, specifically anyone who identifies as a woman, are exposed to various forms of violence which affect their physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health! Not only that, but are also fundamentally believed that they are inferior. Yet, they still remain silent! Furthermore, some survivors choose to stay silent and refuse legal services in order to preserve their homes, their children and their dignity, or because they fear socio-economic, cultural, familial, sexual, verbal, psychological, or physical consequences. And even if they tried speaking up, they will often be the ones to be blamed: "Aya se3a kenit barrat l beit, kenit sekrane, kenit lebse asir..." This sheds light on the unreliability of the ISF and their lack of providing a secure environment for women residing in Lebanon to confide in. That is because the laws do not recognize domestic violence as a crime; therefore, they economically and psychologically undermine women that attempt to leave the household. For this reason, we aim to provide a voice for the voiceless! We believe that silence against violence is suffocating! For this reason, we believe that women should be empowered and learn the importance of self-love and self-acceptance to be able to recover from violence and trauma! By creating a safe space for women through the implementation of our project, the dedication of legal institutions to solve their cases, and the coordination with existing NGOs and activists, we hope to provide them with the tools and strength needed to keep violence away! We refuse women to become victims of violence!
