A Collaborative Exhibition – ‘Hope your Road is a Long One’
“Poetry begins where language starts: in the shadows and accidents of one person's life.” Eavan Boland
"and may you visit many Egyptian cities to learn and go on learning from their scholars.” C.P. Cavafy
The exhibitions by Diaspora Irish artist Fion Gunn and Cairene artist Lina Osama will feature 2D mixed media artworks and immersive film projections which explore the impact of poetry on both of our practices.
The themes of the exhibition are those of diaspora, Odyssey, the legacy of myth and reclaiming the place of women in culture and history.
Venues: Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Alexandria and Picasso East Gallery, Cairo - February - March 2024
