Brilliant Beirut explored the impact of local urban dynamics in the areas of design, production and creative culture.
Curated and designed by Beirut-born and based designer Rana Salam, ‘Brilliant Beirut’ was the first attempt to document the development of design - across architecture, education, graphic design, fashion, furniture and cultural trends - in the the Lebanese capital over the past seven decades since independence (1950s-2015).
Drawing parallels with and distinctions from Western design movements, the far-reaching show considers the shifts in design thinking engendered by civil war and the transition to stability. In addition, it examined how Beirut’s complex social make-up helped nurture creativity, while its long-standing craft traditions and ample production resources contributed to the country’s pre-eminence in the global design scene.
The whole production and installation was done by Print Works.
