The international exhibition “Forever is Now” kicked off on 21 October at the Pyramids of Giza. The international exhibition is organised by the Art D’Égypte Foundation.
The founder of Art D’Égypte, Nadine Abdel Ghaffar said that ” Forever is Now, is the first and largest international exhibition of contemporary art to be held at the Pyramids Plateau in 4,500 years.”
The international art exhibition aims to both reflect the profound, global influence of ancient Egypt and draw on the ongoing inclusiveness of contemporary cultural practices, which is practised by both Egyptian or international contemporary artists.
She added this exhibition is a dialogue between the contemporary artist and the ancient civilization because it includes works of contemporary art inspired and intertwined with the ancient Egyptian civilization. The exhibition will be running until 7 November.
Ten of the most prominent and famous contemporary artists in the world are participating in the exhibition, Russian artist Alexander Ponomarev; American artist Gisela Colón; Brazilian artist João Trevisan; French Artist JR; Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn; Egyptian artist Moataz Nasr; Egyptian born, Los Angeles- based artist Sherin Guirguis; British artists Shuster and Moseley; British artist Stephen Cox RA; and Saudi Arabian artist Prince Sultan Bin Fahad.
