Art Education in the Middle East



AUB Art Galleries announces its year-long project entitled: ART EDUCATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST. This project throws light on the nature, histories, and pedagogical models of art education encountered throughout the region. The event is conceived in terms of several plateaus, where artworks and presentations by faculty and students from different art schools or art departments, as well as material pertaining to their curricula, education, or history will be presented in an overlapping and revolving display. This open format work-in-progress multi-participa​nt global project commences on November 25 (6PM) with a plateau dedicated to art and film education at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK)—a private Catholic university in Mount Lebanon Governorate established in 1938 by the Lebanese Maronite Order. The remaining plateaus will be launched during the spring semester together with AUB students in art history and curating.   

ART EDUCATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST is a collaboration between AUB Art Galleries, Center for Arts and Humanities (Mellon Grant), Center for American Studies and Research (CASAR), and the Department of Fine Arts and Art History (FAAH)
