Talk and Presentation at D-Caf Festival


(In English with Arabic Translation)

To the bustling big city, Rui Calçada Bastos brings along a brief moment of serenity that is his work. The artist comes to Cairo to present and discuss his recent and not-so-recent works. The presentation will include videos and photographic documentation of his artistic work process.

Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) is Egypt’s only international multi-disciplinary contemporary arts festival that takes place over three weeks between March and April each year, at multiple sites in Downtown Cairo. D-CAF includes local, regional and international music, theatre, dance, visual arts, literature and film by cutting-edge artists from Egypt, the Arab world, and beyond. One of the main aims of D-CAF is the revival and reclamation of Downtown Cairo as the vibrant cultural centre, capitalising on its unique architectural and social heritage.
