ArtD’Egypte is thrilled to be showcasing in Downtown Cairo for the third year with Cairo International Art District Edition CIAD 3. This year, the emerging and established contemporary Egyptian and international artists are exploring how historical periods in the art scene have fostered conversations around emergent forms of visuals through the years, with artists merging different eras in their work, practicing past methods through their contemporary language and experimenting with juxtaposed discourses. CIAD’s exhibitions aim to offer the public a chance to engage, observe and contemplate the flowing fluidity of artistic practices across time and culture, viewing the structural and metaphorical overlap of our increasingly growing metropolitan city.
