    Downtown Cairo's Mashrabia Gallery hosts the latest exhibition by Qarm Qart. Qarboush sees the unique artist interpret Nagib Mahfouz's famed Cairo trilogy onto the humble tarboush, using the books, Palace Walk (Bayn al-Qasrain), Palace of Desire (Qasr al-Shawq) and Sugar Street (Al-Sukkariyya), as a starting point for images he stitches on the antiquated male headgear as a way of adding layers of meaning to its significance and tying it into Egypt's past and present. The exhibition takes places in the gallery's Main Hall.

    THE GALLERY IS CLOSED ON FRIDAYS.
