Apart from the Mahmoud Mokhtar main hall, MMCC offers a variety of other locations serving to promote contemporary art: Nahdet Misr Gallery, Isis Gallery, the Cultural Garden and a recent addition, The Wall. 

The centre traditionally opens new exhibitions with a music event, apart from holding separate performances and art shows.

Both exhibitions will run until 12 May.
