Ahram Online, Wednesday 3 Oct 2018
Something Else is curated by Simon Nijami, with artistic direction from Moataz Nasr, and will open on 1 November in various venues across the Egyptian capital


Over 100 local and international artists will present works at Something Else - Off Biennale art festival, taking place at Darb 1718 and other venues across Cairo starting 1 November and runs for 45 days.

This year's theme asks, “What if it did not happen?” and will include works that imagine a different world because history took another path.

The list of international artists includes seven curators who worked with a selection of international artists, including Egyptian artist Yara Mekawei. Among the invited artists are 23 from Egypt. The artworks will be at Darb 1718, and other venues in downtown.
