Disillusionment with the Arab Spring reverberates through this show by Egyptian artist Basim Magdy, who presents a film of his father reenacting Diogenes' quest for an honest man. Also on view is a slide show of emptied construction sites, featuring images with colors distorted by exposure to household solutions—like vinegar—that are also used as antidotes to tear gas.
