THE NIGHT OF MUSEUMS 2012: EGYPT
We would like to invite you to spend part of the Museum Night 2012 at the, for this occasion specially re-created spaces of The Museum of African Art: the Garden, Permanent Exhibition and Dome. By using unique audio and visual motifs inspired by eternal Egyptian symbols, the MAA will bring closer to its visitors ancient and modern Egypt.
The backbone of the evening, in the MAA Dome, will consist of the live painting performance through which one of the oldest and most famous symbols of Egypt: "The Eye of Horus" will be completed in situ by Belgrade artist Milica Josimov. The musical counterpart will consist of a DJ-set with periodic vocal improvisations by Belgrade poet from the band "Lovers."
Throughout the event, based on the body-art technique, you can ask one of the MAA’s artist-demonstrators to paint an Egyptian motif on your body; at the same time various educational and creative activities will also be organised for children, who have not been forgotten in the Museum Night. As a result of the active collaboration between the MAA and the Embassy of the Republic of Egypt in Belgrade, a special information stand with accompanying visual content will be set-up depicting contemporary Egypt.
