SHIFT DELETE 30 .. Panel Discussions Program

THE AIM

From Bassem Yousri Artwork

Our team aims to develop a relationship between the inter disciplines of visual arts and the public realm by inviting artists to become part of an interactive mechanism for social cultural criticism in Contemporary Egyptian Arts. In order to achieve this, we have designed a series of panel discussions, inviting important cultural producers from various backgrounds in contemporary Egyptian arts to familiarize themselves with our current exhibitors and to also introduce them to the emerging practitioners in the field. This includes public and private institutions, foundations and non profitable organizations who support the emerging scene. We also seek artists to be placed in a controversial zone, where by their ideas are publicly exposed and will not be considered always welcome to alternative institutions or practitioners in the field, however offer important alternatives to what is typically viewed in the art scene in Cairo.

SHIFT DELETE 30.. Opening Tuesday Jan10th, the past 30 years of ex-regime in Egypt

By/ Ahmed Abdel Fattah

SHIFT DELETE 30

Artwork by: Ahmed Abdel Fattah

An arrangement of 13 Egyptian artists reconsidering the past 30 years, born within the late 1970s to mid 1980s, bring their criticisms towards the previous Egyptian regime, and realizing the past 30 years as a time for national reflection on what had happened to them personally, collectively, and internationally in the eyes of social politics. Alternatively the times of change being faced since the Arab Spring, due to the critical presence of the “Artist as Citizen” in the contemporary Egyptian streets, we have come to realize that the 30 preceding years needed to be erased, or in some cases revised, developed and reintroduced from the artist’s perspective. Hence, the name “Shift Delete 30,” is that act of socio-political criticism, reexamination, and deletion of 30 years of social and political anarchy.
