An Inside Look at the Dalloul Art Foundation

Essentially a research institute, the Ramzi and Saeda Dalloul Art Foundation has recently launched their website, which serves as a digital reference for Arab art as well as a host for the foundation’s extensive collection of modern and contemporary Arab art.

Watch collector and Director of the Ramzi and Saeda Dalloul Art Foundation (DAF) Basel Dalloul discuss the Foundation, its mission and walk us through some highlights from the Foundation’s collection.

DAF’s permanent collection includes works in drawing, installation, mixed-media, painting, photography, ceramics, and sculpture, providing a comprehensive survey of visual arts from most of the Arab region and reflecting the diversity and boldness of Arab creativity, inspired by the complex realities of the region. 

To view the DAF collection visit the website here.

Ramzi and Saeda Dalloul Art Foundation

Dalloul Art Foundation is a Beirut-based visual arts institution dedicated to making modern and contemporary Arab art accessible to local and international audiences through archiving, exhibitions, education, publications, public programmes, and research. 

Since late 2017, DAF has been made accessible to the public through its presence on social media where it highlights the history of Arab art weekly. Researchers and doctoral students also have access to the foundation’s resources, collection management system, and in-house research, in order to further their studies. The foundation also provides loans to local and international museums.
