Gypsum Gallery is a contemporary art gallery established in Cairo in late 2013. The gallery is committed to presenting an international, cross-disciplinary programme of solo and occasional group exhibitions.
Gypsum has been working with eight artists over a long period of time: Doa Aly, Mahmoud Khaled, Maha Maamoun, Basim Magdy, Mona Marzouk, Tamara Al-Samerai, Setareh Shahbazi and Ala Younis. These artists live and work all over the world, from Beirut to Berlin. Since its opening, the gallery’s exhibitions and artists have already been featured in relevant art magazines. Gypsum has the vision of redefining contemporary art in society, moving away from the non-profit art it is associated with to a commercial gallery context. Gypsum Gallery was founded by Aleya Hamza, a Cairo-based independent curator. Her exhibitions and projects have gained international recognition, her most recent exhibition being on show at the Tate Modern in London in 2012/2013.
