Founded in Cairo in 2013, Gypsum showcases a program focused on an engagement with social, political and formal questions. The gallery represents 13 international artists whose rigorous and singular art practices vary in medium and form. Gypsum is committed to the production and dissemination of contemporary art and to forging longstanding relationships with its roster of artists. The gallery is interested in relocating the progressive and investigative art practices that have been associated with the non-profit art sector of Cairo and the Middle East to a commercial gallery context, in an intimate and generative setting that allows for sociability and conversation.
Our artists have been acquired by leading regional and international collections which include the Centre Pompidou, France; The Metropolitan Museum, USA; The Whitney Museum of American Art, USA; The British Museum, UK; Guggenheim, USA; Foundation Louis Vuitton, France; Castello di Rivoli, Italy; Bonnefantenmuseum and Huis Marseilles, The Netherlands; Museum for Kunst und Gewerb Hamburg, Germany; Barjeel Art Foundation, UAE; Sharjah Art Foundation, UAE and Mathaf: Museum of Modern Art in Qatar.
