why le WaW?



informal [exclamation]

 Lebanese French, English, and Arabic for wow. 

Denotes all possible shades of amazement and wonderment.

Le WAW came out of an observation, that the Beirut art critical community is minuscule in comparison to the breadth of artistic activity going on in the city, and that it is important that it grow, in scope and in quality, instead of dwindling on both counts. Not that I count myself as quality, but I promise I’ll try.

Le WAW came out of a selfish desire, that to make myself heard, and from the fact that I found no outlet to publish me, so thank you internet.

Le WAW came out of what I think was my experience of the local arts scene, and the realization that the more I think I know, the more I realize there is to discover.
