Août gallery is a platform born out of a need for more cultural and artistic spaces in Beirut. Août (August in French) is the month of closure for museums, art institutions and galleries around the world. It is also a personal matter for the founder, Zeid El Amine, who began this journey as a homage to his father who passed away due to the August 4 Beirut blast, hence the name of the gallery. The gallery draws on international artists, with the aim of establishing a global reach. It distinguishes itself as a unique space which interplays multiple cultures, carrying similar messages, of hope and rebirth, but also of sorrows and pains which helped forge resilient art.
