In the Summer issue of ARTnews, our annual “Top 200 Collectors” issue, we profiled prodigious contemporary art collector and fashion retail magnate Tony Salamé, whose hotly-anticipated 40,000-square-foot exhibition space for his Aïshti Foundation opened in Beirut last weekend. This slide show provides a brief look around the new David Adjaye–designed building, which also encompasses a high-end shopping center, and the inaugural exhibition “New Skin,” curated by New Museum artistic director Massimiliano Gioni.
