CAIROGRAPHIE Festival – First Edition
CAIROGRAPHIE is an annual festival of photography and video, launching its first edition in 2017. The festival celebrates both photography and video by bringing together all career stages, emerging, mid-career and established artists and photographers to raise awareness of contemporary topics through all forms of photography and video. The festival creates opportunities for artistic expression and engagement between participants and attendees. CAIROGRAPHIE is organized by Darb 1718 contemporary art and culture center. In its first edition, Darb 1718 collaborates with Photopia. The festival is composed of a main art exhibition and a rich artistic program of workshops and talks, organized by Darb 1718 in collaboration with Photopia. Every year the festival will adopt a different core theme, this year’s theme is “Transitions” which is developed by Egyptian photographer Karim El Hayawan.
“Change is constant. Within the layers, complexity and rapidness of change, transitions occur. Transitions are reflected on us and by us, whether these transitions are inflicted or embraced, resurrected or created. What varies is the impact that transitions incite, both individually and/or collectively.
‘Art belongs to everybody and nobody. Art belongs to all time and no time’. The bittersweet relation where time intrigues, inspires and perhaps unwillingly defies change crowning time as the true essence of life and the leading force behind all transition.. - ‘All art was once contemporary’.
The theme for CAIROGRAPHIE this year centers on the notion and perceptions of how change is conceived, accepted or equally resisted and rejected. The festival aims to explore the ability to perceive, observe and respond to such change leading to future transitions expressed visually through contemporary photography.”
