Panel Discussion on the Beirut Museum of Art - BeMA

BeMA: Beacon of Hope

BeMA USA and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) held special conversation with MoMA director Glenn Lowry – featuring Award-winning architects Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, the President of BeMA Board Joe Saddi, the President of BeMA USA Lili Chopra, and newly announced co-directors of the Beirut Museum of Art- BeMA, Juliana Khalaf and Taline Boladian.

The guests joined Glenn Lowry to speak about the establishment of the Beirut Museum of Art, its innovative architectural design, the museum’s extensive collection and commitment to conservation, and its ongoing, pre-opening programs that engage communities across Lebanon.

The vision that drives the Museum forward in a country assailed by compounded economic and financial crises, exemplifies the potential for art and culture to serve as a form of resistance and courage, and build a more open, creative, and sustainable future.

Beirut Museum of Art - BeMA broke ground in February 2022 and is scheduled to open in 2026. The building design created by Lebanese-born architect Amale Andraos of WORKac was announced to international acclaim in 2018.
