True to its mission to foster and garner Egyptian art, Al Ismaelia Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Karim Shafei, comments, “there is a clear intersection between heritage preservation and art and we are very much aligned with the objective of Art D’Egypte, that aims to position Egypt not only as a heritage of world wonders but also as a celebration of art in all of its forms as a way to interpret the true Egyptian Identity.”
Kicking off this edition, “Eternal Light II” is taking place at The Factory, an exhibition bringing together 12 prominent contemporary artists who transverse works of Ancient Egypt into contemporary art. Building on the enormous success of the inaugural exhibition titled “Eternal Light” in 2017, Art D’Égypte chose this venue with its grandeur to showcase this year’s line-up of artists and art pieces as it transcends all expectations with modern Egyptian works of art. “Artists drew from ancient Egyptian ancestors, an extraordinary motive to reach the depths of our heritage, making a firm bond between Ancient Egyptian civilization and the modernist and contemporary concepts.” said Nadine Abdel Ghaffar founder of Art D’Égypte.
The second exhibition “DOTS” powered by EX by Art D’Égypte features several artists revealing the connection of color and form to create structures that induces a sense of movement and transformation. The Kodak Passageway has become a famed pin location for art exhibitions and culture events, celebrating budding and established artists from all stripes.
