FANTASMIC OBJECTS: ART AND SOCIALITY FROM LEBANON, 1920-1950
by Kirsten L. Scheid
Published by: Indiana University Press
374 Pages, 21 color illus., 38 b&w illus.
In Fantasmic Objects, Kirsten L. Scheid offers a striking study of both modern art in Lebanon and modern Lebanon through art. By focusing on the careers of Moustapha Farrouk and Omar Onsi, forefathers of an iconic national repertoire, and their rebellious student Saloua Raouda Choucair, founder of an antirepresentational, participatory art, Scheid traces an emerging sense of what it means to be Lebanese through the evolution of new exhibition, pedagogical, and art-writing practices.
Kirsten Sheid is the curator of the Wallach's forthcoming exhibition Partisans of the Nude: An Arab Art Genre in an Era of Contest, 1920-1950. The exhibition will be on view October 5, 2023 through January 14, 2024
