July 15, 2021 | Recto & Verso Virtual Exhibition

July 15, 2021 from 12 PM PDT / 9 PM EET

Join the event via Zoom webinar (https://zoom.us/j/96290476483) or Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/events/532484254766198).

The Zoom webinar will have simultaneous English <> Arabic interpretation. The event is open to the public and free of charge.

Recto & Verso showcases works-in-progress created during Creative Impact Lab Cairo’s workshop and project development intensive. Creative Impact Lab Cairo is a five-week online creative exchange convened with 18 Egypt-based artists and led by interdisciplinary artist Katherine Behar.

The diverse works in the exhibition collectively express the multifaceted complexities of women’s empowerment in Egypt. “Recto and verso” is a Latin phrase used by book designers to indicate the front and back sides of a page. In the “old media” pages of a book, the physical form of the paper page ensures that there is always another side. So too, in the digital artworks in this exhibition, new media forms ensure the structural impossibility of reductivist thinking—such as the notion of a single universal value system that would yield an easy resolution to these complex cultural issues. Instead, these works dwell in the complexities, demonstrating that there is always another side to the story.

Recto & Verso features new media art works-in-progress by Rawan Abbas, Youssef Abdelmaged, Doha Aboelezz, Amany Adel, Habiba Afifi, Basma Ahmed, Ahmad Aiuby, Ramah Aleryan, Sara El-Barkouky, Esraa Elfeky, Fatma El Zahraa, Ahmed Fouadeldin, Fatma Heiba, Mariam Ibrahim, Dina Jereidini, Yara Mekawei, Agnes Michalczyk, and Zeina Raafat.

Creative Impact Lab Cairo (2021) is a ZERO1 international exchange supported by U.S. Embassy Cairo and hosted by Medrar. Outreach support is provided by Out of the CircleD2D Art, and Cairotronica.
