With our students’ usual tongue-in-cheek humor, this years’ show is entitled “ALT w Shidd."  As with the previous two exhibitions, the title builds on graphic design in Egyptian vernacular culture. “Alt” is a computer command key and “Shidd” is the Arabic for drag. Put the two words together and any Egyptian designer will understand that it is a duplication command. The graduating class chose this title because many of them are concerned about similar issues. Many of their projects highlight solutions for social and educational problems. Some of them are attempting to revive Egyptian culture in its ancient and more modern forms. All of them are graduating as concerned citizens.

Opening ceremony 5 pm, Sunday December 3, at the Sharjah Gallery, AUC new Cairo. The exhibition will run until December 22. Open daily from 9 am to 4 pm, except on holidays.
