The CARAVAN Exhibition of Art was a hit last year and this year is going to be even better! If you don’t know what this is or what to look forward to, we at CairoScene, have once again, like we always do, have you covered.

Setting up shop at the Westtown Hub, SODIC West in Sheikh Zayed this great event will be taking place from the 4th of April to the 30th from 6pm-10pm. That’s right folks you have 26 days to fulfill your craving for the fine arts. Renowned award winning Egyptian actor, Khaled El Nabawy, will also be in attendance. So now you’re probably wondering what you have to look forward to.

Well, this huge event will be hosting a total of 47 artists work from around the word ranging from the West to East, more specifically Arab, Persian and Jewish contemporary visual artists. The exhibition will be called “The Bridge” and the artists’ work will portray what “bridges” us together through their work, transcending culture, language and religion.

This event has made its way around the world in the past years. With its inaugural edition being held in Cairo at The Museum of Modern art, it has made its way to other venues such as Washington D.C’s renowned National Cathedral and even made its way to the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, New York City’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Even London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral has had a taste of what they have to offer. With over 200,000 people having attended those events globally it’s safe to say that this momentous event holds several fascinating works of art.
