Art Scene


for January 2016

Mashrabia Gallery

Exhibition: Slowly

Artist: Amre Heiba

When: Until January 7, 2016

Address: 8, Champollion St.Downtown


Details : Slowly moves from William Empson’s poem Missing Dates, a frequent source of inspiration for the artist. Instead of being a mere illustration of the poem itself, the show rather wants to express the feelings aroused by the text. In line with his previous production, Heiba portrays a dystopian world where colors, figures and spaces work together to recreate the sense if discomfort and violence of a world changing for the worst.

Exhibition: It Takes a Fool to Remain Sane

Artist: Shayma Kamel

When: Until January 20, 2016

Address: Embassy of Switzerland, 24, Gamal El-Din Abou El-Mahassen, Garden City


Details : Resulting from the interchange between Mashrabia and the Swiss Office for International Cooperation, the show celebrates not only the 25-years long pioneering mission of Mashrabia Gallery, but also the support and promotion of young local talents by the Embassy of Switzerland.


Gypsum Gallery

Artist:  Amr Kafrawy

When: Until January 20, 2016

Address: 5 Ibrahim Naguib St., Ground Floor, Apt. 2, Garden City
