Launch of MHWLN

11 May, 2015

A panel discussion around gallery practices in Egypt, with Mohammed Talaat (Gallery Misr), Aleya Hamza (Gypsum) and Fatenn Mostafa (ArtTalks), took place as a launch platform for MHWLN (pronounced Mohawellun, deriving from the 1930’s avant-garde Egyptian group Les Essayistes). Founded by Clare Davies, Ahmed Naji and Ahmed Shawky, MHWLN is a working group devoted to researching and reflecting on the history of contemporary art in Egypt.
