Gamal has been one of the youngest participating artists at the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2015, presenting a collaborative project conceived together with the Egyptian artists Ahmed Abdel Fatath (1977, Cairo) and Maher Dawoud (1983, Cairo), titled “CAN YOU SEE?”: a large construction of the word PEACE, with optimistic narratives from social chaos. During the opening week of the Biennale, the Egyptian pavilion was widely popular, successfully attracted many visitors.
