07/12/21 6-Day Art Event with Abdullah Ali Butler and Mahmoud Mokhtar

Usually, artists show their work on the walls of galleries. Every piece is defined by its edges. What if this conventional viewpoint would be eliminated? Imagine climbing into a picture, being submerged, enveloped. Not being just an observer but a participant. Imagine being "In the Picture"! Artists Abdullah Ali Butler and Mahmoud Mokhtar make it possible in a 6-day art event, which lasts from Saturday, 11th of December until their exhibition opening on 17th of December 2021. Come and see Abdullah live painting in a fully canvas-covered room, which you can only enter by a slit. Watch Mahmoud creating a sculpture flanking the entrance to the hidden painting like the guardians of ancient tombs.
