Wael Shawky is a multimedia artist born and based in Alexandria, Egypt. His work tackles notions of national, religious and artistic identity through film, performance and storytelling. The exhibition features the US debut of a new single-channel film exploring the historical significance of Alexandria accompanied by several new paintings. Telling tales from the complex history of Shawky’s native region, his works invite analysis into collective belief systems, from faith to the recording of history.
