Wael Shawky The Gulf Project Camp
Egyptian artist Wael Shawky speaks about The Gulf Project Camp, currently on view at Lisson Gallery New York. The theatrical presentation explores the history of the Gulf Region and its development from the mid 17th Century to today. Shawky discusses the challenges faced when searching for historical source materials, his referencing of ancient poems, and his use of maps that were often rendered by foreigners who might have never even visited the region.
