The Four Seasons Hotel at the First Residence, Cairo, Egypt
Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at the First Residence is taking Cairo’s art scene by storm. From the moment you step into the hotel, throughout the public spaces, the eye-catching artwork ranges from paintings, sculptures, photography and glass work. This collection has been put together in close cooperation with Syra Arts. Based in both Washington DC and Cairo, Syra Arts is a cultural operator dedicated to promoting contemporary Egyptian art internationally. The depth and diversity of contemporary art from Egypt, has already caused quite a stir in several exhibitions organized by Syra Arts in the USA.
This exhibition is not a typical static collection but one that will be introducing rotating exhibits every three months. To enhance the hotel’s own private collection, 10% of sales will go into a fund to commission an art piece from one of the artists.
Featuring many of Egypt’s top contemporary A-list established artists such as Essam Marouf, upcoming and talented artists such as Galila Nawar, Mohamed Ardash and Ayman Lotfi to name a few. The art exhibition aims to not only enrich the lives of guests at the hotel but also the burgeoning Cairo art scene by transforming the hotel into a “live gallery” and a hub for social and cultural exchange.
Echoing the global trend, Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at the First Residence is using this exhibition as an opportunity to play homage to Egyptian culture by taking on the important role in promoting the country’s distinguished and emerging artists.
