December 2013
Zico House, Beirut, Lebanon

Curated by Rachel Dedman, Nora Lukacs and Aischa Berg
INTERIM was a two-day exhibition and forum held at Zico House, Beirut, Lebanon, in December 2013. I initiated this project as part of the Home Workspace Program at Ashkal Alwan with two other curators, Nora Lukacs and Aischa Berg.

INTERIM was an exhibition and forum space realised collectively by participants of the Home Workspace Program 2013/14, Ashkal Alwan, Beirut. As the current chapter draws to a close, we wanted to create an independent space in which participants could exhibit their work – both new and not, finished and in-progress – and reflect together upon questions and issues of interest. The workshops and screenings that run alongside are initiated by artists, and the weekend was open to the public. Due to the open nature of our call for proposals, the work shown was richly varied. Some of the participants had left Beirut, leaving their work or instructions behind them, while others who have not yet arrived, kept in touch with the group via email. This dynamic reflects the international spread of the HWP demographic in 2013/14, and the nature of global mobility and conversation that the year’s program – posited for the first time as an experimental free school – facilitated.
