The Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain is exceptionally closed on Thursday 20 June. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you from Friday 21 June, until 8 September for the visit of the exhibition Josef and Anni Albers.

Khalil Gibran is known worldwide for his spiritual book The Prophet. But what text from his work would he like us to discover today? For one evening, Roda Fawaz summons the renowned Lebanese poet to the Villa Empain for a journey into the unknown. Out of a selection of thirty texts drawn from the body of Gibran’s work, fifteen will be randomly chosen by the audience and read by the actor.

“Chance’, it seems, is the name God takes to pass incognito. God, universe, life, call it what you will, but on that day, we will be in Gibran’s hands, at the mercy of the unknown and of life. What message will the poet deliver?” – Roda Fawaz
