From "My Favorite Things 5" Sara Salem Detail of I am Not Here Collage, mixed media on canvas 160 x 20 cm 2019

After the success of the five previous editions, the All-Girl Art Collective “My Favorite Things” is back this year!

Born in 2016 as a small group exhibition presenting a selection of the most inspiring artworks of the season, year after year “My Favorite Things” became a permanent visual platform.
Its main purpose is to highlight the work of Egypt-based contemporary women artists and assist them in their artistic journey by providing technical and theoretical assistance from the realization to the setup of the artwork.
The platform culminates in an annual exhibition where women artists are requested to submit their conceptually strong, original, and innovative artworks, hopefully far from the influence of the academies.  
While having the chance to freely express themselves and their concerns, the chosen artists will receive local and international exposure.
If you are an emerging artist or art student, regardless of your age, please apply to be part of the next group exhibition that will be held at Mashrabia Gallery, downtown on October 2021.
