Sfeir-Semler Gallery, with spaces in Beirut, Lebanon and Hamburg, Germany, concentrates on international contemporary art with an emphasis on conceptual and minimal art. For the last fifteen years, the gallery has been at the cutting edge of art production in the Arab World, nurturing a unique cross-cultural link between Western and Middle Eastern contemporary art practices. It has taken on an integral roll in the establishment and development of key international artists from the Arab world such as Walid Raad, Akram Zaatari, Wael Shawky, and Etel Adnan, launching pioneer solo exhibitions, gaining global exposure through participation in international biennials and exhibitions, and facilitating acquisitions by major museums around the world, simultaneously encouraging young emerging artists to expand the gallery’s program and continue it’s history of innovation.
