Event Details

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 to Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - all day
Margo Veillon Gallery, AUC Tahrir Square
Tahrir Cultural Center

AUC’s Tahrir Cultural Center announces a trilogy of exhibitions addressing questions of art, technology and society. Collectively, these exhibitions probe the creative disruptions and possibilities enabled by technology. Technology helps generate the conditions of possibility for creating, circulating and seeing new kinds of art, while the artistic imagination extends the capacity of technology for social change. At the same time, technology can erect other kinds of barriers whose implications can remain obscure. How does the artist’s visual language reflect, engage and impact the relationship between technology and society?

Glitch brings together a group of international artists to explore the ways our understanding of the past, present and future is mediated through technology. The exhibit will span video art, digital paintings, photographs, multimedia installations, drawings, paintings and sculptures. Exhibited artists include VJ Um Amel (b. Alexandria, Egypt), Petra Cortright (b. Santa Barbara, United States), Shady El Noshokaty (b. Damietta, Egypt), Mounir Fatmi (b. Tangier, Morocco), Jonathon Hexner (b. Dhaka, Bangladesh), Pouran Jinchi (b. Mashhad, Iran), Basim Magdy (b. Assiut, Egypt), Haytham Nawar (b. Gharbiya, Egypt), Mona Omar (b. Cairo, Egypt), Kour Pour (b. Exeter, United Kingdom), Shahzia Sikander (b. Lahore, Pakistan) and Talisker (b. Paris, France).
