Furthermore, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at the American University stressed that the exhibition is located in a historical site, which made it difficult for artists to choose artworks that can be displayed in a place such as Al-Moez Street, without interfering in the historical vibe the landmark holds.
Art D'Egypte aims to provide contemporary Egyptian artists with a unique platform to showcase their manifested visions amidst the enriching Egyptian heritage. The event will exhibit the breath-taking art works of 28 contemporary artists.
