JABAL is an art exhibition that has set the pace for the discovery of over 300 young Lebanese talents over the years out of whom more than fifty are today prides to the nation.
In each of its editions, JABAL exhibition groups a large number of designers from different Lebanese regions that did not have the chance to exhibit their work yet in any art gallery.
