Hello, I’m an artist
On the occasion of launching the fourth edition of Roznama competition and exhibition for visual arts, Medrar celebrates the winner of the last edition, by presenting “Hello, I’m an artist”, Sara Nabil’s first solo exhibition.
At “Beirut”, a contemporary art centre located in Cairo, I met and talked with the assistant curator, a graduate of Fine Arts of the American University in Cairo, of the space and her advice to me was to always introduce myself… to shake hands like this … and to say I am ... and I do … that I cannot just make art and neglect this part.
Sara Nabil introduces herself and her artistic project through her first solo exhibition “Hello, I’m an artist” where she presents some personal experiences using different artistic mediums, including photography, drawing, painting, installation and video. In general, her work touches upon 3 main issues: the instinct to colour which drove her to study art at a young age, the relation between art and the public, and contemporary art vs. romanticism.
Born in 1987, Sara Nabil graduated from the faculty of Fine Arts, painting section, Alexandria University in 2010. She partook in several workshops and group exhibitions. “Hello, I’m an artist” is her first solo exhibition.

Address: 7 Gamal El Din Abou El Mahasen St., 1st floor, apt. 4, Garden City, Cairo
