From Mokhtar to Gazbia looks at how some of the twentieth-century native Egyptian artists engaged with issues of nation-state, nostalgia, and tradition, while others faded the borders between narration and the human condition; how some chose to remain loyal to the traditional Western school of classicism, while others vouched to create an authentic and distinct visual language based on a variety of styles and aesthetics.
From Mokhtar to Gazbia features over seventy artworks by 48 artists, handpicked and sourced from different private Egyptian collections, to narrate the story of the emergence and evolution of modern Egyptian art, as they seek a new home.
Whether you are a serious collector, a Fine Arts student, a historian, an artist, or simply an art lover, do take the time to visit the one-month exhibition, and do not forget to put on your twentieth-century hat.
