Christine Tohme

About artist / group: 

Christine Tohme is a Beirut-based curator who has been organising public events in Lebanon, and creating exchange platforms involving Lebanese and foreign artists. In 1994 she became one of the founding members of Ashkal Alwan (Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts) a non-profit arts organisation which she has since directed. From the outset, Ashkal Alwan has been committed to fostering and developing artistic endeavours across a wide range of disciplines and media, including installation art, video art, photography, performance and publication. In 2001, Ashkal Alwan conceived Home Works, A Forum on Cultural Practices, a multidisciplinary event intended as a public arena in which artists, curators, intellectuals and cultural practitioners could engage in critical reflection and debate. In 2006-2007, Christine Tohme will be undertaking an MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths College in London.
