Mashrabia Gallery is a contemporary art gallery established in Cairo in the mid ’70s. Since the 1990‘s and under the new management of the director Stefania Angarano, the gallery has played a pioneering role in the diffusion of Plastic Arts through the presentation of non-Egyptian artists in Egypt and the promotion of young Egyptian talents on both the local and the foreign scene.
Breaking with the dominant artistic tradition, the preference for innovative languages free from any decorative components as well as originality and power of the art pieces have always been the criteria for the rigorous selection of the artists and their works. The continuous promotion of established artists and the search for new talents has enabled the creation of a rich and diversified permanent collection. This includes a service of art advising both for private clients and companies.
Mashrabia Gallery organizes temporary exhibitions on a monthly basis, both at the gallery and in other venues in Egypt and abroad.
Acting as a vibrant cultural incubator, the gallery also regularly hosts various artistic performances, lectures and discussions.
Amongst the founding members of El Nitaq Downtown Art Festival, the gallery collaborates in an intensive activity of exchanges with private galleries and centers in Switzerland, Italy, Turkey, Tunisia and other countries.
The gallery’s exhibitions and artists have been featured in Mada Masr, Al Ahram Online, Al Ahram Hebdo, Contemporary Practices Magazine and Cairo Art Blog, among others.
Mashrabia Gallery is located in the vibrant neighborhoods of Downtown Cairo.
