An exhibition of contemporary public art has opened in Giza. 5,000 years of history serve as a backdrop (and symbolic link) to the objects.

Art D'Égypte, founded by Egyptian gallery owner Nadine Abdel Ghaffar, has initiated a massive project. In Giza, at the foot of the pyramids, for the second time (the pilot launch took place in 2021), a public art exhibition was opened, including new works by 12 famous masters of this genre. Most of the names are Europeans and Americans, but there are also representatives of the Middle East.

The exhibition was called Forever Is Now II, and its main theme, set by the platform itself, is the connection between times and generations. Pyramids, a wonder of the world with a 4,500-year history, set the vector of movement – into the future.

Each of the artists in their own way adapts eternity to the reality of 2022, but most of the works are still meditative, setting you up for a session from the past. Augmented reality plays an important role in the perception of objects. It is proposed to walk around the exhibition, periodically putting on AR-glasses and plunging into the world of associative sounds and superimposed pictures.

The images somehow refer to ancient history. These are reflections on the cult of death, and on the rituals that accompanied the living. Artists strive to show the connection between the world of the gods and the earthly life cycle.

Egypt today is one of those countries where you can easily escape from the autumn cold and warm up. So the event is worth taking into account. Moreover, the pyramids in such an entourage will definitely not appear again soon.
