Rendering of future Umm el-Fahem Museum of Contemporary Art

The building will consist of a three-dimensional grid that creates an envelope for the various activities of the museum. The structure will be composed of a foyer with a shop, an archive, a library, an auditorium, an education center, and exhibition spaces. The spaces will be arranged around an internal patio that houses sculptures and that interlaces with the natural course of the wadi.

The current Gallery building, located at city center, was renovated in Fall 2016. Upon the completion of the new building the Gallery will be used as an annex of the official museum, and will serve the community for art classes, and artist residencies.
