Moving Pictures Painted

22 July '23 at 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Join us for the book launch of Moving Pictures Painted (CentreCentre, 2023), edited and designed by Patrick Fry, through publishing house CentreCentre; who create books that celebrate unexpected or overlooked collections of art and design. Moving Pictures Painted surveys seven decades of illustrated Egyptian film posters – spotlighting both the art form and the artists that cinematic history has often overlooked. Featuring over 200 images and essays from Joseph Fahim, Haytham Nawar and Christiane Gruber.

The launch is followed by a conversation with artist and designer, Haytham Nawar, as well a selection of vintage posters featured in the book on sale by Aflam Posters.

This event is co-presented with CentreCentre and is part of the programme for Small Press Fest, an annual fair celebrating independent publications and publishing practices. Check out the full programme here:
