Syrian Arab Republic Pavilion

Syrian Civilization is still Alive

During half a century, Syrian artists have participated in the Venice Biennale; among them, there are two important exponents of Syrian visual
arts, namely Fatih Almoudares, and Louay Kayali.
Since 2007, Syria has been pleased to take part with its own pavilion in this important international event together with international artists who have adopted a variety of approaches. In this edition, special thanks go to the artists of the Syrian motherland: Saad Yagan, whose painting focuses on the presence of humanitarian; Ibrahim Al Hamid, inspired by local traditions; Abdalah Abouassali’s realism, and Saed Salloum’s abstraction, looking at surreal worlds.
With their participation in Syrian Civilization is Still Alive, the invited artists embrace the dialogical dimension of their works beyond national borders.

Commissioner and Curator:
