As part of the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival , CIC presents ‘I’m Not There’, an empty exhibition and a nightly series of artist interventions.Contrary to the traditionally spectacular vibe of a festival, ‘I’m Not There’
is an exhibition of absent artworks – a fully staged exhibition with
many artists involved, but without the artworks. It forms part of a long
history, following Surrealism and Conceptualism, of disrupted and empty
exhibitions. I’m Not There, however, reflects specifically on the broad scale of conditions of working for artists both in Egypt and abroad. Attendance is free.
