The AUC Visual Arts Program, Department of the Arts
invites you to
We are proud to present four paintings made by American modernist Robert Colescott during the two years in which he lived and worked in Cairo as a researcher, artist, and the first Visiting Professor of Art at AUC — where he was also the first African American professor who curated the first art exhibition, at the first art gallery, in the University’s history. Please join us during Black History Month 2021 to celebrate a selection of Colescott’s Cairo paintings along with compelling archival documents, images, and records surrounding his work.
Please wear a face mask at all times when inside the Margo Veillon Gallery or when in proximity to others. If you have recently experienced flu-like symptoms or have recently been exposed to others who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or its symptoms, we wish you good health and hope you will visit the Tahrir Cultural Center on another occasion soon. Your health, and the health of all participants in this exhibition, are of utmost importance to us. Thank you and stay safe!
