As Another step towards cementing our mission of nurturing art knowledge and appreciation, ArtTalks is pleased to announce an upcoming talk with the renowned scholar and author Patrick Kane.
Kane has recently published “The Politics of Art in Modern Egypt: Aesthetics, Ideology and Nation-building.” He will discuss the prominence of several prevailing themes among artists in subsequent years from 1948 to 1970: El-Moulid, Nasser’s nationalist agenda, peasant-landlord relations and the rise of migrant labor.
