Curational Projects

A Survival Guide

2010

Corporate Graphic Design by Nagla Samir

A collaborative exhibition of art projects by young and rising artists, experimenting with the concept of defense mechanisms developed to confront with the cumulative risk and constant pressure of Now and Here, surviving a hectic mega city like Cairo.

This project had two main objectives; one was to curate a show that has a pedagogical value to AUC students; bringing in the work of rising artists,with a light sarcastic approach to the issue that can communicate easily to students' interest and inspire them to take a step into the art scene when they realize how we celebrate young talent.

And the other was to curate an Off- Biennial show, positioning Sharjah Gallery and AUC on the active culture agenda of Cairo during the occasion.
