A collaborative exhibition featuring artists Lina Osama and Mhanny Yaoud and titled A Shared Space (4) is scheduled to open at Saad Zaghloul Cultural Centre on Tuesday 31 January, where it will run until 9 February.

The exhibition comes as part of a series of collaborative art projects between both artists which “reflect their daily lives.”

The collaboration between Osama and Yaoud began as early as 2014 with a painting art installation titled Our Daily Prism, and which comprised acrylic and mixed media on canvas, wood and metal. It was followed by an exhibition titled A Shared Space in 2015 and an interactive art installation carrying the same name in 2016.

According to the exhibition’s description, the title  'A Shared Space,' “expresses the state of producing a group art work as well as the nature of intertwining lives especially between closely related people."

"Our shared lives," thus function as an "empty space continuously being covered by layers of interaction with the ones we allow to participate in shaping and enhancing our ' space.”

Yaoud is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Minya University. He is an award-winning artist, having received the Youth Salon prize in 2008 and CIB bank Collectibles Prize at the 2011 Youth Salon.


Osama holds a Bachelor's degree in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo (2009) and is also an award-winning artist having scooped the Mohamed Monir prize in the 18thYouth Salon, and the Painting Prize at the 2015 Young Artists Salon.
