“The Key” is the 2016 CARAVAN Travelling Exhibition of Contemporary Visual Art that will open in Cairo on 15 March at the Nile Art Gallery and run until 12 April.

This exhibition features the work of 40 Egyptian, Middle Eastern and Western visual artists using the theme of "the Key of Life" ” (Ankh) the ancient Egyptian symbol of harmony. The organisers hope that choosing this theme could work as a message for a harmonious, peaceful and tolerant world.

According to its organisers the art works will be exhibited in London and New York City following the Cairo event. 

CARAVAN Travelling Exhibition is an annual artistic event that is running for its third year, with a percentage of the proceeds to be directed to "Educate Me," a programme to support the education of underprivileged children in Egypt.


Opening: Tuesday, 15 March, 7pm
Nile Art Gallery, 16 Montazah St., Zamalek
