He is currently writing his dissertation on the reception of Palestinian-American critic Edward Said within the discipline of art history since the 1970s. The dissertation will ultimately evaluate Said’s strategies of post-colonial critique through case studies of selected contemporary Egyptian art and curatorial practices. Mr. El-Sheikh’s writing on contemporary art and cultural politics has been published in the Canadian periodicals Parachute, C Magazine, Canadian Art and ETC, and internationally in exhibition catalogues produced by the Kunsthalle Wien.
