“The Art of Staying at Home” Exhibition
The BA Exhibitions and Collections Department launches an exhibition entitled “The Art of Staying at Home: Artists in the Time of Corona” on Tuesday, 8 December 2020, at 1:00 pm, in the BACC East and West Exhibition Halls.
The exhibition is held in light of what the whole world has experienced since the beginning of 2020, and the dire predicament faced by the current generation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, together with the imposed global procedures of lockdown and social distancing. This situation allowed artists to rethink and reshape their works, while experimenting new ideas and techniques that stem from their own experience of isolation and social distancing.
All artistic works on display are original and homemade (paintings, graphic designs, and photographs).
The exhibition features 61 artists from 8 countries (43 Egyptian artists, and 18 foreign artists from Yemen, Canada, Sweden, Serbia, USA, Romania, Switzerland, and Austria), with a total of more than 180 works of art.
The exhibition runs until Monday, 28 December 2020. It is open for public from Saturday to Thursday: 9:30 am – 6:00 pm. Fridays and official holidays are off.
Alert: Kindly note that all visits will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors are set to enter the exhibition halls in groups of no more than 50 persons (one group at a time). Facemasks and social distancing are mandatory for the safety of visitors and staff.
