The First UK Retrospective of the Egyptian-Canadian Artist of Armenian Origin, Anna Boghiguian

This is the first retrospective in the UK of the Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin, Anna Boghiguian (Cairo, 1946). A close observer of the human condition, the artist draws equally on the past and present, poetry and politics, joyfulness and a critique of the modern world.

This is the first retrospective in the UK of the Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin, Anna Boghiguian (Cairo, 1946). A close observer of the human condition, the artist draws equally on the past and present, poetry and politics, joyfulness and a critique of the modern world.

This immersive exhibition features dramatic large-scale installations of paintings on sailcloth and papier-mache sculptures, alongside more intimate displays of artist books and elements of her own studio.
