26febAll Day28EGYPT INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR

Event Details

The Egypt International Art Fair will showcase approximately 20 galleries from around the Middle East and North Africa Cairo, Egypt.

As most nations across the globe continue to grapple with the coronavirus, particularly as many countries re-enter lockdown and faced renewed restrictions, the Egypt International Art Fair is going against the odds to stage its second edition at the Dusit Thani Lakeview Hotel in Cairo from 26 – 28 February. The fair, which staged its first edition in the same edition from 8-9 March, intends to transform Cairo into another arts hub in the Middle East, a place where modern and contemporary art galleries, curators, artists and art professionals from around the region and internationally can congregate to share their love and knowledge of art and culture.

The Egypt International Art Fair marks the first art fair curated and organised in Egypt with the aim to offer an international platform for art and culture in Cairo. The first edition featured works by more than 100 artists with a total participation of around 1,300 artworks by 18 participating galleries from Egypt and the MENA region.

The second highly anticipated edition of the fair takes place with great enthusiasm from Egypt’s growing art scene. This new fair will feature a robust program of events, talks and studio events. There will also be two distinct sections at the fair: a galleries zone and a specially curated section displaying established and prominent artists from Egypt and abroad, including Syrian artists based in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Vienna,Lebanon and France; artists from Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, Saudi Arabi and the UAE. Within this curated section will also be specially dedicated pavilions from Jordan and Bahrain.
