The result is a composite portrait, at once disjointed and revealing, partial but not trivial.
The launch of Bidoun #25 at Artists Space will bring together friends from the Bidounisphere to reveal, perform, show and tell some of the things discovered in Cairo.
After-party featuring Egyptian shaabi music by Rainstick and Azizaman
