A must see exhibition!
.
"Egyptian Art in the 1920s" at the Aïsha Fahmy Palace in Zamalek.

Missing In Action
.
In a first statement of its kind, the Fine Arts Sector on behalf of the Egyptian Ministry of Culture has announced they will take all necessary legal actions against anyone trying to sell or purchase this painting by the late modernist painter Abdel Hady El-Gazzar.
.
This public decision should open the way to finding many artworks that belong to the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo and other cities and are now hanging in other museums outside of Egypt.

Titled من وحي فنارات البحر الأحمر، the painting belongs to the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo but is missing.
.
Translation of the statement:
.
Important cautionary statement Concerning a painting (Inspired by the Red Sea Lighthouses) by the late artist Abdel Hadi Al-Jazzar ***
The Fine Arts Sector of the Egyptian Ministry of Culture warns against dealing in the sale or purchase of artwork (inspired by the Red Sea lighthouses) by the late pioneering artist Abdel Hadi El-Gazzar. The sector confirms that the work is owned by the plastic arts sector and the holdings of the Egyptian Museum of Modern Art, after it received information about the possibility of a fraud related to the purpose of marketing this work for sale. The sector clarifies that the work has been on loan since 1971, and is considered missing, and that the plastic arts sector and the Egyptian Ministry of Culture reserve the right to take all legal measures in this regard to preserve the national artistic heritage.

The Phoenix Rises

OMAR EL-NAGDI (1931-2019).

In the late 1960s, El-Nagdi formed the short-lived Phoenix Group inspired by the mythical Arabic bird "which does not exist, but soars in every existence…that is visual art."
.
In honor of El-Nagdi's career, legacy, and contribution, join us in celebrating The Phoenix, El-Nagdi, whose existence will keep on soaring.

After a meeting at The Museum of Modern Art in Cairo, I discovered that the Inji Efflatoun Museum that used to be housed at the Amir Taz Palace has now moved to the Museum of Modern Art on a temporary basis.
.
Now that it is closer, go and visit.
.
Absolutely stunning works are on display in a separate room dedicated to Efflatoun.
.
Although the lighting needs improvement and the space is small, it's a feast to the eyes.
.
Overall, pay the Museum a visit, now that it's fully functional and all floors opened.
.
Thank you Dr. Iman Nabil, the museum director, for being such a lovely host.

P.S. last slide is Inji with her sister, Gulperie.

I am humbled that my book Modern Art in Egypt has been nominated amongst 26 books, then shortlisted among 5 finalists, for the prestigious 2021 Peter Mackenzie Smith Book Prize in London last night.
.
Thank you, Dr. Noel Brehony, chairman of the Judging Committee, for your statement:

"Modern Art is a brilliant book. The author provides an outstanding introduction to Egyptian cultural life and shows how the artists were influenced by political developments of the nationalist and anti-colonialist movements [...].
.
"The judges want to make a special commendation of Modern Art in Egypt as it does much more than the title suggests. In introducing the reader to the Egyptian contribution to modern art, the author has written one of the best introductions to modern art that is available. This is an important, original, well researched, beautifully written, and accessible publication that is likely to be of long-lasting significance."
.
Congratulations to Peter Hessler for winning for his book, Buried: Life, Death, and Revolution in Egypt.
.
Thank you, @lizzyvartanian, former I.B. Tauris commissioning editor for your trust and support throughout the project.
.
I can't wait for Volume II, Modern Art in Egypt: Rupture and Revolution 1936-1973, to be in the market.

20/03/2022

An Expressionist painter par excellence, Yousry’s work is noted for its intensity and rawness through the twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterizes his paintings and drawings. With its distorted lines and extensive show of figurative emotion, his unorthodox art and style go against rigorous academics, mixing linearity and subtlety. Some may describe Yousry’s work as monstrous, frightening, with a concentration on nudity, revelation, and deformation, if not ugliness. Yoursy celebrates “Le laid est beau,”
[The Ugly is Beautiful].

I was in France with my parents and sister. My late dad الله يرحمه was posted as a diplomat. One particular incident. One mean French teacher asked me to never again write in Arabic on my papers in front of the whole class. I was a kid. And devastated.

How hard is it to dig into our past? To really dig deep into memory lane? Many moments and people will instantly pop up. Maybe a best friend. The first day at school. Someone you fell in love with.
.
But what about those moments that were buried by our subconscious and thought forgotten? The burial of a loved one, perhaps. And what about the details of our childhood? How did your bedroom look like? What was the name of your bawab?

Presenting FORTY by Salam Yousry - a personal unravelling of a past: the cherished, the remembered, and the forgotten.

ArtTalks presents OMAR EL NAGDI – The Phoenix Rises – exhibition- Opening Reception on Tuesday , May 31 at 6 pm. Omar El-Nagdi (1931-2019) who created the artists group “ The Phoenix “ , was an Egyptian abstract expressionist and cubist painter. He is considered one of the most celebrated contemporary Egyptian artist with a multifaceted master of calligraphy, expressionism, abstract art, and philosophy. His paintings stir sensory surrealism from the liveliness and the warmth of the people's lives reflected in the religious and Egyptian folkloric scenes . His depictions are a unique pictorial lexicon deeply-rooted in Egypt's politics and in the lives its citizens. His artworks procure opulent poetry with elements inherited from 20th century artistic trends namely Expressionism, Cubism and Fauvism as he was inspired by Paul Cézanne for his compositions, Paul Gauguin for his palette of colors and Vincent Van Gogh for the emotion and intensity emanating from his works, while preserving in his paintings of Egyptian traditions. “My artistic character developed between Bab Al She’reya neighborhood and rural Egypt. The influences of the popular area’s noise and the quietness of the rural environment were complete opposites. This affected my artistic personality by making me unable to commit to a certain artistic style.” Multi-faceted Omar el Nagdi has exhibited alongside the Western Masters Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. With 16 local and international prizes and the French Parliament’s medal under his belt, El Nagdi has recently broken his world record, selling his 15m Sarajevo painting for over one million USD at Christie’s Dubai in March 2016. He is considered one of the most celebrated contemporary Egyptian artists; he is a multifaceted master of calligraphy, expressionism, abstract art, and philosophy.

Check out the current exhibition at the stunning Aisha Fahmy Palace in Zamalek. .

Ranging from paintings, sculptures, and video. . The show is on until 14 May 2022 and the Palace, according to my understanding, opens at 9am and closes at 9pm. Not sure about Ramadan Iftar break hours. . #aishafahmypalace #contemporary #art #contemporaryart #egyptianart @george.bahgory @artist.khaled.zaki @khaledhafezstudio @zamalekartgallery @ubuntuartgallery @hazemmestikawy
دعنى أعيش فى السحر الذى أحبه فإنى لا أريد أن أعرف ما هى الأشياء فإن الحياة مع المعرفة لا أستطيع احتمالها لأن المعرفة شئ لا يعرف إلا فى اللاوعى لأننا مضطرون إلى المعرفة ونحن جزء من المعرفة الكلية ولا نستطيع أن نفصل أنفسنا عن هذه المعرفة عبد الهادى الجزار. . #artmatters Abdel Hadi el-Gazzar, Popular Chorus, 1948.
After a meeting at The Museum of Modern Art in Cairo, I discovered that the Inji Efflatoun Museum that used to be housed at the Amir Taz Palace has now moved to the Museum of Modern Art on a temporary basis. . Now that it is closer, go and visit. . Absolutely stunning works are on display in a separate room dedicated to Efflatoun. . Although the lighting needs improvement and the space is small, it's a feast to the eyes. . Overall, pay the Museum a visit, now that it's fully functional and all floors opened. . Thank you Dr. Iman Nabil, the museum director, for being such a lovely host. . P.S. last slide is Inji with her sister, Gulperie. . #museumofmodernart #Cairo #modernart #egypt #injiefflatoun #history #20thcentury Documenting #egyptianmodernart one page at a time. PS. Location is stated wrong, don't know why. It's the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo.
