“1971, Sun Ra in Egypt” at Medrar for Contemporary Art in Cairo.
Please join us on Thursday May 15 at 7:00 p.m. for the opening of Tom Bogaert’s “1971, Sun Ra in Egypt”, including a special performance by Maurice Louca.
One hundred years after 1914, Medrar for Contemporary Art is celebrating Sun Ra’s birthday in a special exhibition.
Bogaert’s “1971, Sun Ra in Egypt” is an ongoing research project based on the life and work of Sun Ra that exists as an series of performances, lectures, installations, videos, art objects, and related publication. The project takes as its starting point Sun Ra’s 1971 visit to Egypt, and many of the related works playfully insert Sun Ra’s life and legacy into the conceptual, pop, and minimalist zeitgeist of the New York art world of 1960s and 1970s.
