DESCRIPTION

 

 

Gypsum is a new contemporary art gallery established in Cairo in 2013.

The gallery is committed to presenting an international, cross-disciplinary program of solo and group exhibitions, publications, limited artist editions and occasional off-site interventions. Eight artists living and working between Alexandria, Amman, Basel, Beirut, Berlin, Cairo and Tehran are represented by the gallery including Doa Aly, Mahmoud Khaled, Maha Maamoun, Basim Magdy, Mona Marzouk, Tamara Al-Samarraei , Setareh Shahbazi and Ala Younis. We are dedicated to forging longstanding relationships with artists, whose rigorous and singular art practice varies in medium, form and approach.

Gypsum is founded by Aleya Hamza, an independent curator based in Cairo. Since completing her MA in History of Art at Goldsmiths College in 2001, she has lectured in contemporary art at the American University in Cairo, and worked as a curator at Townhouse Gallery and the Contemporary Image Collective in Cairo.  Her projects and exhibitions have been featured internationally in Alexandria, Amsterdam Beirut, Berlin, Bonn, Budapest, Cairo, London, Odense and Rabat. She co-curated the third and fourth editions of PhotoCairo, and her most recent exhibition was on show at the Tate Modern in London in 2012/2013.

Gypsum is based in a 1940’s converted residential apartment in the neighbourhood of Zamalek, Cairo. Official opening was on the 29th of October in 2013 with a solo show of recent work by Setarah Shahbazi.
