Roznama is a periodical competition and exhibition for contemporary visual art by young Egyptians. This year, Roznama received over four hundred applications, the largest submission count to date. Out of the works, 56 were selected to be exhibited across three primary art spaces across downtown Cairo: Medrar for Contemporary Art, Townhouse Gallery, and Mashrabia Gallery (Annex). The works selected traverse an array of mediums, themes, and concepts, resulting in an exceptionally varied exhibition. Participants are comprised of diverse backgrounds, including mid-career professional artists, students, and novices.
