Triple Exhibition "Ganubiyat - Southerners"
by Ashraf Abo Elmagd, Gamal Latif and Afaf Salah

From 11 to 31 January 2021. Extended until 14 February 2021.

The Ganubiyat exhibition (ganubjyat is Arabic for "southerners") presents three artists, who come from Egypt's south. Gamal Latif, Afaf Salah and Ashraf Abo Elmagd transfer scenes from everyday life into amazing colourful paintings. In this way, they ensure that the rural scenes, powerful customs and traditional festivities, which they depict in their artworks, won't be forgotten in modern-day Egypt.
