‪“The Cairo Art Fair III”, is Egypt’s largest ever contemporary art exhibition. The CAF III showcases the work of over 100 Egyptian artists participating with over 1000 artworks. Among many other artists: Ibrahim Al-Tanbouli, Ayyad El Nimr, Gamal Meleka, Mohamed Abul-Waffa, Mostafa Rahma, Khaled Hafez, Lina Mowafy, Hossam Dirar, Alaa Abul-Hamd, Aida Khalil, Ahmed Osman, Mahmoud Al-Deweihy, Ahmed Magdy and Islam Ebada. CAF III is perhaps the most unconventional art fair in the region; breaking the boundaries of format, participation, duration and presentation, the fair is an unmissable synergy of art and artists. Displaying well-established artists alongside upcoming stars has always been, and continues to be the gallery's unique strategy, designed to portray an honest reflection of today's Egyptian art scene. The artwork will periodically change during the course of the fair (closing15 February). ‬
