In the past five years Rana El Nemr has emerged as one of Egypt’s most notable visual artists. Her photographic series explore the social and economic effects of living in a megalopolis.
In conjunction with this residency, Art in General publishes a brochure with a text by Lyra Kilston. It can be downloaded here for free. For a printed version, purchase this publication along with the entire set of Art in General’s residency brochures in the online store for only $5.
Rana El Nemr’s and Mona Marzouk’s artist residencies are made possible thanks to a grant from the Cultural Exchange Program of the U.S. Department of State administered by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Additional support of Marzouk’s residency has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
