The King Tut Collective
TORCH is delighted to be working with this exciting collective of artists of Egyptian origin or artists working on Egyptian themes that are based in the UK and abroad. This exhibition brings a vital element to the TORCH Egypt Season, sharing an intimate look into the lives and experiences of these artists both within modern Egypt and across the diaspora. Significantly, the majority of the work is by artists of Egyptian origin, platforming these voices that have historically been overshadowed by a Western perspective.
Running simultaneously in the #WindowGalleries and in St Johns' College Kendrew Barn & Studio, The King Tut Collective exhibition was on display in the #WindowGalleries from 3 to 13 December 2022. The King Tut Collective are: Ahmed Fawaz, Aïda Eltorie, Asmaa El-Nawawy, Farah Barakat, Fouad Hammoud, Rania Hedia El Agami Raine, Seherisujai, Tasneem El-Meshad and the Bassett House School.
