‘A7A Portraits’ uses photography and mixed media to present the original meaning of the word ‘A7A’ and challenge the taboo attached to the word

‘A7A portraits,’ a photography exhibition by Egyptian/Canadian artist Bashir Wagih opened on Wednesday, 13 March in Photopia, Heliopolis.

The exhibition presents a series of portraits and mixed media installations challenging the colloquial and historical meaning of the word ‘A7A,’ a pejorative slang term in Egyptian Arabic which over time became taboo.
