In the Los Angeles Review of Books, ICWA fellow Jonathan Guyer has published a review essay on the resurgent interest in Egypt’s little-known Surrealist movement, co-authored with  American University in Cairo Professor Surti Singh. In “The Double Game of Egyptian Surrealism: How to Curate a Revolutionary Movement,”  Guyer and Singh consider the legacy and enduring relevance of the avant-garde Art and Liberty Group, which was active in Cairo during the interwar period. Two large-scale exhibitions about Art and Liberty signal the entrance of Egyptian modern art into the international canon, they write, while offering a case study in how a radical movement can be reappropriated by and for the establishment.
