Egyptian Folk Tales opened on 9 November at the Art Gallery in the Annexe building of the India International Centre (IIC) of New Delhi, India, and runs till 15 November.

Organised by the Egyptian Embassy in India, Abla exhibits a collection evoking fantasy worlds and tales, created using stencils of collage based mono-prints, a different medium than his usual work in painting.

The exhibit will also feature a short animation entitled A Tale for Reem, created and directed by Ahram Online’s Soha Elsirgany and based on Abla’s artwork and the characters in his folk tales.

Elsirgany won the Salon prize in the 2014 Youth Salon for her video art work Ficus Sycomorus.

Abla had first unveiled and exhibited the works from this collection at Cairo’s Mashrabiya Gallery, where it was entitled Tales for Reem and marked the gallery’s 25 year anniversary.

Abla is also not a stranger to India, having previously visited and created a series of paintings inspired by its streets, which were exhibited in August at Maulana Azad Centre for Indian Culture in Zamalek.

Exhibitions calendar
I like to read very much the articles about fine art and art exhibitions in Al Ahram.. And I'm very keen to visit art exhibitions yet I find difficulties to find out about all exhibitions running, when and where to go to visit them, I'd like if Al Ahram creates an Art Calendar with current exhibitions so whenever anyone wants to enjoy art it' would make it easy to find out which exhibitions are being held. Thank you Laila
