Description

The exhibition The Tentmakers of Islamic Cairo represents the main output from the 2014 AHRC-funded collaboration between the University of Durham (UK) and Dr. Fusari.
The exhibition includes 40 (forty) colour prints measuring 80 by 67 cm (32 by 25 inches) on a 5mm light metal support, and is complemented by a screen interactive show presenting more than 400 documents including videos, texts and photographs via a multimedia platform.
The exhibition opened in March 2014 at the Cathedral of Durham (UK), to travel to The Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels (Belgium) in April 2014. Between April and June 2015 it was visited by more than seven thousand people at the Brunei Gallery of London (UK) to later become part of the permanent collection of the Durham Oriental Museum (UK).
