(This event has passed)

Oct 3, 2015 7:00–9:00pm
Organized by: The Townhouse Gallery
Venue: The Townhouse Gallery
Address: 10 Nabrawy Street (off Champollion Street) Downtown, Cairo

Townhouse invites you to an open studio session with resident artists Flavio Palasciano (1987, born in Lausanne, Switzerland. Lives in Wien. Works between Turin and Wien) and Mattia Macchieraldo (1985, born in Biella, Italy. Lives and works in Turin.) 


In this open studio session, they discuss and show a work in progress, “Idle Sponges”, a sculptural structure that combines physical and digital pattern making/recognition. It poses their questions and observations of the city of Cairo, its aesthetic behavior and political conduct in relation to the notion of the space.
