March is Women’s Month in Egypt, and art spaces in Cairo and Alexandria are marking it with exhibitions of works by Egyptian women artists that celebrate the creativity of women and the power of art.
The Art d’Égypte Foundation is holding an exhibition in Cairo of works by 16 visual artists committed to freedom of expression.
According to Nadine Abdel Ghaffar, president of Art d’Egypte, the exhibition is an opportunity for Egyptian women artists to showcase their creative ideas and to emphasize the strength of their creativity in the struggle for freedom of expression.
“We operate out of our belief that art can be a tool for bringing about societal change,” Abdel Ghaffar said in a news release. “The power of creativity has proven its importance and impact throughout the ages.”
The show runs until March 30 in the Kodak Passage in Downtown Cairo under the title “Ma’arad-Ha” (“Her-Exhibition”).
One of the participating artists, Weeam El Masry, told Al-Fanar Media that the event brings together different age groups and artistic trends with an intense dose of feminist art.
