Share on

The Ramez G. Chagoury Faculty of Architecture, Arts and Design (FAAD) at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU), launched on November 21, 2017, Ghada Jamal’s art exhibition titled “Beyond the Arab Spring.” It is the first series of art event that are scheduled to be held in the FAAD space gallery, simply known as “Platform.”

Attending the event were Vice-President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) at NDU Dr. Elie Badr, FAAD Dean at NDU Dr. Jean-Pierre el-Asmar, Ghada Jamal (the artist herself), and Lecturer at NDU and Event Organizer Roula Majdalani as well as students, faculty, deans and, staff.

Majdalani introduced the exhibition by giving a brief overview of the series of art event. She said, “The idea is to create a space or a platform for experimentation, searching for new and diverse ideas, and a way to convey it to the audience, “Beyond the Arab Spring” shows a deep engagement with the artist’s role as a human conscience to the society and his environment. The displayed canvases and sketches express that by showing the artist attempt to reshape memories.” She also thanked the Department for their support.

For her part, Jamal said, “This is important at NDU because it is about students. Students are the greatest asset. They are the best of us, and we want to protect them and keep them innocent in believing, in loving, and in thinking that the future is possible.”

Jamal said, “The butterfly is a symbol of freedom, but in these paintings, they have no horizon. The black is the void; there is no room for freedom of expression.”

NDU students from the Department of Music captivated the evening with entertaining Jazz tunes.

The exhibition will run until December 7, 2017.
We’re waiting for you!
