Cairo - Against the backdrop of the three Great Pyramids of Giza and their plateau, an open-air art exhibition featuring a dozen contemporary art installations is held in the southwest of Cairo, Egypt.

 

The "Forever Is Now" exhibition is meant to combine ancient history and cultural heritage represented in the pyramids with contemporary art, drawing a link between the past, the present and the future.

 

One of the installations is a six-meter-tall unfinished obelisk by Emirati conceptual artist Zeinab Alhashemi.

 

Made of stainless steel and camel hides, the obelisk symbolises the well-known ancient Unfinished Obelisk located in Upper Egypt's Aswan.
