Here are some snaps from the exhibition we did with Project Kahkaha in the prestigious Umam Hangar Gallery in the perhaps too famous neighborhood of Dahiyeh, Beirut. It was a smashing success where a lot of famous people of different fields took a break from their over scheduled lives in order to socialize with us over some fine art on a beautiful Saturday.
The exhibition was a summary of Lina Khoury’s work over the past five months in the Palestinian refugee camp Burj el Barajneh. Among the exhibits were a series of portraits by the Italian photographer Marco Pinarelli. The Polish artist Marta Bogdanska displayed a beautiful series of photographs from a recycling workshop that the famous designerBeatrice Harb did with the children in the camp. In addition Sami Awad from Hot Zones Production showed a documentary film that he did about the project.
The 2famous.TV corporation contributed by showing a series of five photographs taken by the internationally recognized traveller and photographer Matias Nordahl Carlsen. The successful artist Jørgen Evil Ekvoll that usually sells his artworks for the price of houses showed three drawings that he did in collaboration with some of the children from the refugee camp. One of these drawings, which is from our first exhibition in Beirut, will be given to one of our subscribers at the end of next week.

“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.
– The kids went mental!
Some of the artists at the Hove festival OWNED the audience, and Bastille was definitely one of the highlights. With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage
Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-...

As the 2famous crew sat on the beach, contemplating life and looking out onto the horizon, distant tribal beats were calling our names. We had to get to where ever that music was coming from.
