Cuadro will present the second iteration of Nadine Kanso’s “Makan fi al Zakerah” (Memory of a Place) photography series, wherein Kanso captures images of today’s Beirut and highlights with an eerie familiarity the resemblances they have with times long past. The artist’s longing for her native Beirut is powerful in her honest depiction of dilapidated buildings in its older neighborhoods, juxtaposed with words and images from publications of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Images of elegant men and women peer out from the balconies of once luxurious buildings, most likely similar to those they probably once occupied. Words and phrases from these publications of times gone by resonate with the spirit, energy and issues that are relevant in today’s world.
