Goodman Gallery artists Joël Andrianomearisoa, Kudzanai Chiurai, Marco Cianfanelli, Sam Nhlengethwa, Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse will feature on the 12th International Cairo Biennale in Egypt this December.

Conceived and initially designed to explore contemporary art in the Arab world, the concepts of the successive artistic directors expanded the interest to the global international arena. The biennale is produced by the fine arts sector of the Egyptian ministry of culture, and the exhibition is spread over the entirety of all public spaces managed by the sector.

The 12th International Cairo Biennale runs from 12 December 2010 to 12 February 2011. For more information visit www.cairobiennale.gov.eg.
