Nile Sunset closed in 2015, but their website still offers a rich archive.

Nile Sunset Annex is artist-run project in Cairo. It functions primarily as a self-funded, experimental art space which occupies a room in a flat. It offers local and international artists a space to realise month-long exhibitions as well as organizing group shows. In response to a perceived gap in Egypt, it focuses on exhibiting physical objects as opposed to digital artworks, although not exclusively. It produces a publication alongside each exhibition in Arabic and English, using a completely different format each time, and runs a sporadic parallel program of discussions and screenings. It aims to keep one work from each show in order to create a contemporary art collection that can be shown in the future as an exhibition in the space but also elsewhere. Nile Sunset Annex was founded in January 2013 by the artists Taha Belal, Hady Aboukamar and Jenifer Evans.
