At the Takla Gallery within the headquarters of Al-Ahram on Galaa Street, a remarkable exhibition of paintings opens on Saturday. 

Entitled “Al-Ahram’s Plastic Memory”, the exhibition commemorates 140 years since Al-Ahram was founded, showcasing some of Egyptian and Arab modern art history’s most significant landmarks – Mahmoud Said’s The Honey Eyed Girl among them – which the institution has acquired through the years. Other legendary artists represented include Gazibeya Serri, Hamed Nada, Seif Wanly, Tahia Halim, Nahmia Saad, Ragheb Ayyad, Engi Aflaton and Georges Bahgory. 

Conceived in the context of preparations to launch the Al-Ahram Museum, which will include sculptures and press paraphernalia as well as paintings, “Al-Ahram’s Plastic Memory” is organised by Al-Ahram’s Diwan magazine and supervised by Diwan’s editor, the celebrated poet Ibrahim Dawoud. Launching the activities of the Takla Gallery, the exhibition reflects Al-Ahram CEO Ahmed Al-Sayed Al-Naggar’s vision for an expanded cultural role on the part of the institution.
