Opening Tuesday Dec. 11th 6-8pm
Dream (Almost) presents new work by Nada Shalaby on the relationship between memory and urban space. This includes a series reflecting on loss, transformation and sites of trauma in the city of Cairo, and an installation of Two-Worlds, a project soliciting stories from New York residents on spaces in the city that spark a memory of another place they have experienced.
Nada Shalaby is a visual artist born in Cairo. Her research-based practice explores the relationship between language, place and memory. In 2009, Nada established a lived practice in a storefront in Chicago, where she also founded a social practice residency program for young artists and co-founded the art space Doukan7002. She moved to Egypt in 2011 and served as a faculty member in the Department of the Arts at The American University in Cairo. In 2015, she was awarded the Edes Foundation Prize for Emerging Artists. Her work has been exhibited in Egypt, Iran and the U.S. She moved to New York in 2017 and is currently a resident artist at Local Project.
