What do artists do when there’s a revolution going on? Carry on making art, is the resounding reply from Mica Gallery and the artists in its current show, From Facebook to Nassbook. The exhibition includes contributions from nine contemporary artists working in Egypt, whose practice responds to the dramatic political and social upheavals of the Arab Spring. With a particular focus on Cairo, much of their work emphasises the everyday lived experience of urban political unrest – a welcome and appropriate intervention from street-level at a time when the balance of power is, well, in the balance.

The show was part of the recent Shubbak Festival, and continues until 8th September. You can read more about it here.

Opening hours:
Mon-Fri, 10-6
Sat, 11-6
