Arcade Gallery was established to promote different contemporary art disciplines and value adding cultural projects, offering its small but cozy place for temporary exhibitions. Also, to allow the encounter of different energies and visions of different artists by presenting them to the public with the purpose of participating in the development of the society.
Arcade art gallery is located in Maadi in a beautiful villa with an artistic nature; the villa also hosts an art center (Place Des Arts), a music store (Flex Music Store), a coffee shop (Al QahwaKhan) as well as the office of the well-known Islamic architect Dr. Omar El Farouk (Arcade), from which the name of the gallery was derived, matching with the beautiful design of the villa and its arcs.
The gallery exhibits various art disciplines such as painting, sculpture, photography and installation, promoting contemporary ways of expression of emerging artists as well as established ones.
The gallery schedules contemporary art exhibitions around the year for the duration of a month each and an exhibition for pioneer’s works dedicated to art collectors once per year. Arcade presents in parallel other activities such as talks with artists to explain and get deeper understanding of their artwork, their views regarding art, their interaction with the social scene as well as sharing their own experiences through their career with the audience.
