Portrait painter Omar El-Fayoumi combines the Fayoum style of painting, the modern term for a type of realistic portrait painted on wood and attached to mummies from Roman Egypt, with modern painting techniques and colours.

“Architecture Tsunami”, is an exhibition of questions that emerged from a research project conducted through a Faculty Support Grant from AUC. The research was a focused exploration of the corporate architecture that makes up the spine of New Cairo - the skewed halves of Roads 90 South and North. The research sought to hear, or rather decipher what the architecture of the economic powerhouses of the new economy says about the language of contemporary architecture in Egypt. This is a question of particular interest in view of the new vision for Egypt in the making that is symbolically being given a new form in a new Administrative Capital. This is a free and open event (closing 12 May).
