Ubuntu Art Gallery opened its doors in October 2014 and specializes in contemporary Egyptian artworks and secondary market modern Egyptian art. The gallery was founded by Ahmed Eldabaa as a separate entity to his family business which has been dealing in antiques in Cairo’s famed Khan ElKhalili market and Cairo’s Zamalek neighborhood for three generations. The gallery aims to promote young emerging talent and artists with more established practices regionally and internationally. Its name derives from the Swahili word “ubuntu” which means “I am because we all are,” to connote a holistic concept of being. At Ubuntu Art Gallery, a belief in the interconnectedness of how Egyptian history and society influences Egyptian identity is at the core of the work presented.
