MARWA EL-SHAZLY at Mashrabia Gallery

Mashrabia Gallery invites you to attend the opening of the exhibition Made in Lebanon by MARWA EL-SHAZLY on Sunday September 22, 2013 at 7:00 PM.

"I am speaking about the Lebanese pop divas, those who are being produced mainly in Beirut but also in Cairo and represent one of the cultural prides of Lebanon. The basic feature of this industry is the combination of regional Arabic tunes and the elements of international pop music. The themes tend to focus on longing, sorrow, passion and all kinds of dreamy romantic love issues. Therefore the most frequently used words are “my love”, “my sweetheart”…etc. which comes from an unrealistic world, probably as a mean of resistance or a getaway or to satisfy irreplaceable human needs which enriches the idea of dream and hope"

The exhibition runs until October 17, 2013, daily except Fridays from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art - 8, Champollion St., Downtown Cairo
Phone 02 25784494, mobile 0100 1704554.
Opening hours: Daily except Friday 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
