Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

Lamia Ziadé was born in Beirut and currently resides in Paris, where she moved at the age of eighteen. Ziadé started her career as a fabric designer for fashion houses such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and a designer of album covers and movie posters. She is also a prolific illustrator, having contributed to numerous international fashion and news magazines and illustrated five children’s and one adults’ book.


In 2003, she started exhibiting large erotic canvases reminiscent of pop art where passionate women are consumed by strange desires, with a touch of humour and a taste for obsession.


Recently, she turned to an investigation of the nostalgia that surrounds the beginning of the Lebanese civil war, albeit in a spirit full of humour and derision. Using fabrics, sequins and wool thread, she creates installations where she reproduces and aggregates daily objects of mass consumption of the era. In 2010, she also published Bye Bye Babylon (1975-1979), an illustrated novel set in the same period.


Since 1996, Ziadé has had solo shows in Beirut, Paris, Los Angeles and Munich. She has also taken part in numerous group exhibitions and art fairs, such as the FIAC (Paris, 2006) ArtParis (2008), Pulse (New York, 2008), Slick (Paris, 2007), ShanghaiArt (2007, and the Armory Show (New York, 2010).
