The poster was a sign of prestige in galleries, and was regarded as an instrument required for promoting exhibits and artists, in spite of its limited exposure. Poster production continued during the eighties regardless of the war and the reduced number of galleries (Damo Gallery, El Rimal Gallery, Les Cimaises, Planula, Elissar...), but practically disappeared in the nineties when gallery goers, mainly in Ras Beirut, had moved to different parts of the country. Posters were mainly distributed in Ras Beirut along Hamra Street and the neighborhood to announce an event.
