Huda Lutfi's latest exhibition Magnetic Bodies, inaugurating Townhouse West, the recently opened branch of Townhouse Gallery, is an exploration of power dynamics and their connection with the visual aesthetic.

In Magnetic Bodies, the human figure is the main subject, sometimes functional and other times decorative objects, through which she tells stories of social and political undercurrents.

Lutfi is a historian and multimedia artist, working with installation, paintings, collage, and other mediums including video.

She was the grand prize winner of the 26th Alexandrian Biennale for Mediterranean Countries, where she exhibited her video project ‘Biyadaat’ (2012).

Biyadat was previously exhibited at Townhouse in 2013 with Cut and Paste, which was charged with her readings of the political art scene after the revolution.

The exhibition opens 15, 16 May, and will run through 1 July
Townhouse West, Westown Hub, Beverly Hills, in front of BISC, Cairo
