Ganzeer | There's an Elephant in Every Room

Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Part of programming for the exhibition Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art
Egyptian street artist Ganzeer (“bicycle chain”), who emerged as a galvanizing force during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011, highlights the social and political relevance of some of the artwork produced in Egypt over the last three years and why it frightens Egypt’s newest leader, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Ganzeer also explains why you don’t need a crisis as obvious as Egypt’s to create relevant art.
