There is an urgency and relevance to Rana Salam’s work because of its ability to cross cultural borders while inviting individuals to reconsider their perceptions of the Middle East through design. For over twenty-five years, the award-winning art director has, with a socially-conscious eye, researched and collected the Arab World’s popular and visual culture.

In 2000 she launched Rana Salam STUDIO in London before relocating to Beirut in 2011, where she contributed to the Lebanese capital’s rebirth as a destination for innovative design. Now residing in Miami, Salam joins us at The Arts Club with SAIC’s Fashion Resource Center Director Alex Aubry for a visually immersive talk about her career, as well as Beirut’s design scene.

This program presented is in partnership with the Fashion Resource Center and the The Arts Club of Chicago.
