Sidewalk Salon: Artist Talk by Manar Moursi

October 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sidewalk Salon: Artist Talk by Manar Moursi

On October 18, 2016, architect and designer, Manar Moursi, gives an artist talk about Sidewalk Salon: 1001 Street Chairs of Cairo, a book co-authored with David Puig. Their book features polaroid photos, interviews, essays, and poems that consider the multiple connotations the many chairs on Cairo’s streets conjure in relation to issues of gender, class, surveillance, and labor. By training their lens on an often ignored utilitarian object that is an ubiquitous feature of Cairo’s urban streetscapes, Moursi and Puig guide readers’ to interpret the city’s social, political, and economic features through the varied arrangements and functional uses of its street chairs.
