for November 2015
Artist: Taha Hussein
When: 25th October – 7th December2015
Address: 8, Champollion St. Downtown
Details: Drawing on a great and rich repository of years lived. A successful symbiosis of overview and proximity; both leave their traces in his oeuvre. The overarching imagistic world and the place of their origin fade into one another. The curtain behind the dining table and the view from the window which is veiled by closed curtains. An underlying ambient hum, known for years, hardly perceived anymore. In this manner, the ambience, the place of creation take hold in the greater imagistic contexts which are thus imbued with all the more authenticity, since, while they originate here, they point much further – to the realm of great art.
Artist: Maged Mekhail “Many Rivers To Cross”
When: 12th October – 15th November 2015
Address: 8 El Kamel Mohamed St., Zamalek
Details: Many Rivers To Cross is, in part, a tribute to our ancient collective past that forms who we are today. Ever since he carved his own place in contemporary Egyptian art, thirty-three year old Maged Mekhail has sought to say something, many things indeed, hoping that, whether we cross or not, our pride will keep us alive.
Artist: Mohamed Monaiseer
When: 26th October – 14th November
Address: 6, Brazil St., Zamalek
Details:Monaiseer expresses another unique concept “Barzakh” through abstract calligraphy and relevant symbols over large treated, sometimes distressed natural fabrics using mixed medias of inks and chemicals only known to the artists as much as his writings.
