The Phoenix Rises 31 May - 30 Jun

The Phoenix Rises is a tribute to the internationally acclaimed, multidimensional, multidisciplinary Egyptian artist on the third anniversary of his passing:

Omar El-Nagdi (1931-2019)

In the late 1960s, Omar El-Nagdi formed the short-lived Phoenix Group inspired by the mythical Arabic bird “which does not exist, but soars in every existence…that is visual art.” (El-Nagdi quote).

In honor of El-Nagdi’s career, legacy, and contribution, we are celebrating the Phoenix, El-Nagdi, whose existence will keep on soaring.
