After a spectacular first iteration held last year, Art D’Egypte is aiming to repeat the successful experience by bringing its acclaimed Forever is Now exhibition back to the mighty Pyramids of Giza. Once again, the platform that aims to promote the Land of the Pharaoh’s art on an international level is inviting artists and cultural practitioners back to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to showcase and shed light on their latest work.
Running from this following Oct.27 to Nov. 30, the month-long event will breathe life back into one of history’s oldest civilizations through eleven contemporary artworks that all nod back, in their own way, to this year’s central themes, namely the environment and the public, as well as the future.
In a statement, Nadine Abdel Ghaffar, Art D’Égypte’s founder, said:”Our global success last year, motivated us to develop new plans that will amaze the world once more. We have worked hard over the years to establish Art D’Egypte as one of the region’s premier art consultancies and we are proud to bring you this latest endeavor.”
Building on last year’s momentum, Forever is Now II will attempt to express the compelling concerns pertaining to sustainability and climate in a day and age where the global community is on the brink of a point-of-no-return crisis. These themes will be addressed through the perspective of a slew of multidisciplinary artists, which will include the likes of Swedish painter Jwan Yosef, British-American sculptor Natalie Clark, French-Tunisian calligraphy master eL Seed, and Saudi filmmaker Mohamad El Faraj, amongst others.
The installations that are expected to make their way to Cairo will again serve as tokens of a present-day understanding of the past while projecting ourselves into the future. Somehow bridging both eras together through art, Forever is Now II is the event not to miss this back-to-school season if cruising past the North African country this fall.
