Event Details

Featuring sculptors, Mahmoud Mokhtar, Adam Henein and Armen Agop, Meem Gallery’s Summer exhibition looks at the last century of Egyptian sculpture, through three outstanding works.

Sculpture has always featured prominently in the rich history of Egyptian material culture. Stylised human, animal and hybrid forms decorated the tombs of the Pharaonic elite, and monumental structures paid homage to their many gods and kings. Considering this remarkable heritage, much of it still extant, it is little wonder that a stylistic continuum exists in modern and contemporary Egyptian sculpture.

Through these three works by sculptors spanning three generations, this exhibition focuses on the artistic legacy, continuum and development of Egyptian sculpture.

This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Adam Henein who sadly passed away on the 22nd of May 2020.
