CUB GalleryBenoit Barakat, Bayrut, Lebanon
Founded by Jean Riachi, Nathalie Ackawi and Amar A. Zahr in 2017, CUB Gallery is a space dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging artists from fine art programs across Lebanon.
Tucked away on a side street in Badaro, a neon cub beams through all the hustle and bustle of the city. This emblem marks CUB Gallery; a new kind of exhibition space dedicated to creating an accessible channel for artists early in their career as well as young collectors. The artists represented by CUB Gallery are currently enrolled or recent graduates of art related degrees from Beirut-based universities. The gallery will serve as a platform for artists to present their artistic endeavors outside the academic curriculum and introduce their practice to the wider public.
