Why "Egyptian Art in Revolution" and why "in Sharm"?

 Why "Egyptian Art in Revolution"?

 Art has been always a revolution on the reality, re-creating it, reproducing it in a new shape, angle and dimensions.

The revolution starts and finds its expression in Art.

 Why this exhibition in "Sharm"?

 This exhibition is trying to create a link between Art and Tourism. All Egyptian artistic richness could be sold to our foreign guests: about 10 or 12 Million tourists per year! We have the goal to create important artistic centers in tourism areas and we believe that in the future tourists from Arabic and Foreign countries will come purposely to see and buy Egyptian Contemporary Art.

Art will not only benefit from Tourism but Tourism will also benefit from Art.
