Embarking on a historic Journey
BeMA broke ground on February 25, 2022, signaling a new era for modern and contemporary art in Lebanon. The launch took place in a ceremony attended by Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati as well as political and cultural figures.
“BeMA is envisioned to boost cross-cultural encounters and is an act of resistance and courage for an open Lebanon, daring defiance in the face of violence, pessimism, and frustration”
Joe Saddi, President of BeMA Board of Trustees
