33rd Salon d'Automne
Opening reception: Thursday 1 November, 18:00 to 21:00
The Salon d’Automne is an open call exhibition, held at the Sursock Museum since its opening in 1961. The Salon’s open call format is an opportunity for the Museum to encounter a wide variety of practices by artists living and working in Lebanon, and for early career artists to show their work in a major exhibition at the Museum.
The 33rd Salon d’Automne brings together 31 artists working across all media, from painting and installation to video.
Every edition, the Museum awards several prizes: the Sursock Museum Prize for the most innovative work, and the Emerging Artist Prize – generously gifted by Mrs. Hind Sinno – for the most promising early career artist. The Audience Choice Award, first introduced in 2016, gives visitors the chance to select your favorite artwork to be awarded, so don’t forget to cast your vote in the exhibition space.
