Art on 56th is an independent visual art gallery in Beirut, Lebanon. It was founded by Noha Wadi Moharram and partners in 2012.
This unique space makes its home in a charming historical building that dates back to the French era in the heart of Gemmayzeh, Beirut’s bohemian quarter.
In addition to presenting local artists to an international audience, the gallery’s mission is to promote established and emerging artists from around the world in Lebanon and the Middle East through various thematic exhibitions. This results in a colorful interchange that highlights the power and meaning of images within a society.
Art on 56th exhibits artworks in a large variety of media like painting, sculpture, work on paper, photography, and video.
The gallery hosts monthly shows and participates in several art fairs every year.
