DESCRIPTION

In the noted absence of private and public collections of contemporary art in Egypt, Beirut imagines their possible presence with A Guest Without A Host Is A Ghost, a project that brings over thirty artworks from the Kadist collections in Paris and San Francisco on a year-long residency to Cairo. As temporary guest to the city, the collection will be present in various shows and events.

The project will launch on May 6 and May 7 with an exhibition across three venues: Contemporary Image Collective, Townhouse and Beirut. The exhibition will comprise works by internationally acclaimed artists from around the globe, many of them showing their work for the first time in Egypt, including Eleanor Antin, Taysir Bhatniji, Zarina Bhimji, Nicolas Consuegra, Hans Peter Feldman, Aurélien Froment, Ryan Gander, Jiří Kovanda, John Menick, Charlotte Moth, Melvin Moti, The Propeller Group & Superflex, Mungo Thomson, Walid Raad, Akram Zaatari, and many more.
