A metaphorical “tunnel” or website is now set for Egyptian artists in preparation to investigate visual and performative colloquy with American artists. By building a discourse between the U.S. and Egypt, the goal behind the project is to break down the barriers between Muslim and Christian prejudices as well as addressing general xenophobia, gender and class issues. The project hopes to tap into the various forms of performance and installation, birthing a hybrid language of communication.
Through social, political, and environmental observations the “tunnels” will create an experience that seeks and speaks emotional truth and intelligence through art, unafraid of change, culture and inspired by the education of new ideas.
IMPORTANT: Artists are curated from the website, into the 3-D tangible exhibit at the Mattress Factory Museum. Therefore, artists must produce work on the website in order to be exhibited in the final show.
