A Guest Without A Host Is A Ghost
Beirut imagines their possible presence with A Guest Without A Host Is A Ghost, a project that brings over thirty artworks from the Kadist Art Foundation collections in Paris and San Francisco on a year-long residency to Cairo. As temporary guest to the city, the collection will be present in various shows and events.
Beirut will temporarily transform into a collection institution with a widespread infrastructure, directing this ‘residency’ in close collaboration with the Kadist Art Foundation and various local partners including the Contemporary Image Collective, Townhouse and Institut Francais d’Egypte au Caire. The selection comprises works by internationally acclaimed artists from around the globe, many of them will be showing their work for the first time in Egypt, including Ji?í Kovanda, Charlotte Moth, Melvin Moti, The Propeller Group & Superflex, Walid Raad, Akram Zaatari, and many more. The project will kick off with a joint exhibition of all works across three venues between May 6 and June 18, 2014.
