Featured: Art in General Spring Exhibitions Opening: Youmna Chlala, Days of Being Wild – Date April 20
Art in General is pleased to present Days of Being Wild, a short film by artist and writer Youmna Chlala–who participated in ArteEast’s 2011 "The Anti-Artist Talk Series" at the Performa Institute–as part of their Spring Exhibition. The show features exhibitions by three young NY-based artists whose works are inspired by landscape from America's mythic west to modern Cairo, to the surf at New York's Jones and Long Beaches.
Days of Being Wild documents a walled balcony where two small children play soccer, illuminating the vertical mosaic of city life. Though universal in subject matter, Chlala’s video lovingly documents modern Cairo, where life and leisure occur above the city, behind walls, blurring public and private space.
