– The RectoVerso Library in Monot Street, in Beirut, is an outreach venue documenting art in Lebanon and offering numerous cultural activities.
To promote art appreciation, foster creativity, preserve artwork, and be a hub for art in Lebanon through
Exhibitions: Highlighting prominent artists, distinguished art collections, art themes, or eras of art in Lebanon.
Documentation: Establishing and updating a database of books and artwork to become a resource center for modern and contemporary art in Lebanon.
Outreach: Organizing and fostering cultural activities by involving the community in activities such as performing arts, theater, concerts, dance, and talks.
