A series of talks will be held for the closing of the exhibition of “A Textile Experience: A Reformulation of the Works by Hamdy Abdallah” at El-Gezira center on 4 January.

The four talks will be delivered by established artists and art professors, including Mostafa El-Razzaz, Hamdy Abdalla, Gamal Lamie and Samia El-Sheikh.

The same exhibition was previously held at the Faculty of Art Education in Zamalek last April, before it opened again at El-Gezira Art center on 20 December.

Hamdy Abdallah is an Egyptian artist and art professor at the Faculty of Art Education. While he had previously created works in ink, the works currently on display are elaborate embroidered fabrics, with scenes and characters that evoke folk and fairy tales.
