Don’t miss “Menawwareen 2” group exhibition at Mashrabia gallery

At the Mashrabia gallery, the “Menawwareen 2” exhibition of light installations opened on 4 May. It features artists Afrodite W. Elseesy, Alia Bassioni, Heba Abu El Ella, Jean-Luc Marchina and Xavier Puigmartí. It is the second edition of Menawwareen – previously part of Noubar project (2004) – a group exhibition exploring and experimenting with the notion of light.

The figurative and abstract compositions of five artists, Egyptians and foreigners, using simple materials such as paper, glass, copper and wood, recall the tradition of lanterns strung up in the city squares and across the streets and evokes the spiritual atmosphere of Ramadan.

The exhibition will remain on view until 30 May.
