Travel: Townhouse gallery - Cairo

The Townhouse Gallery of contemporary art has been exhibiting work from the region’s contemporary artists since 1998. The gallery space has provided a fitting platform for visual arts, film, music and theatre.
Recent expansion has allowed the gallery to offer more space and depths to their installations and exhibits.
The construction of an annex in 2001 and a factory space in 2002 has helped turn the gallery into one of the largest private exhibition spaces in the Middle East. A library was later built in 2004 and gave the public access to a wide collection of up-to-date art resources and data such as text, journals and press.
Artists exhibited at the gallery include Amal Kenawy, Barry Iverson, Youssef Nabil and Lara Baladi. The gallery launched an artist residency program in 2000 to provide artists with a local studio space where they could work within an urban-based environment.

The gallery also has a series of outreach programs that aim to offer educational programs as part of the community development.
