An Exploration of Diminishing 'Hope' & its Correlation to 'Constructive

Chloe Stavrou reviews the exhibition curated by Bassam El Baroni featuring
Hisham Awad, Katia Barrett, Amanda Beech, Leonardo Cremonini, Martti
Kalliala, Yuri Pattinson, Nelmarie du Preez, Matthew Poole, Patricia Reed,
Walid Sadek and Mohammad Salemy, in the non-profit arts space Ashkal Alwan,
in Beirut, Lebanon.

What Hope Looks Like After Hope (On Constructive Alienation) is an
exhibition conceived by Alexandrian curator Bassam El Baroni as part of
Ashkal Alwan’s international cultural forum, Home Works 7. Run by the
Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts, Ashkal Alwan is a non-profit
organization based in Beirut, Lebanon. The exhibition opened on November
12th and ran until the 10th of December 2015. Drawing from philosophical
concepts revolving around the drowning of the contemporary human
consciousness and free will, the show is an elaborate discussion of how we
are coping with the decline of a future that used to be in our hands.
Bassam El Baroni in union with the artists involved raise questions as to
how we can mediate and engage with solutions for creating (or
disintegrating) prospects of a more ‘hopeful’ future.
