I won't let you die
November 19, 2008 - March 12, 2009
The Third Line presents Youssef Nabil's latest artist book, I won't let you die, published by Hatje Cantz (Germany). The book was launched at the The Third Line booth during the 2008 artparis-Abudhabi art fair.
The book features text by the artist himself, as well as an extended essay from art critic and curator Octavio Zaya. It also includes conversations between the artist and three of his former subjects: Shirin Neshat, Ghada Amer, and legendary Egyptian actress Faten Hamama. With 272 pages and 137 illustrations in color, this is the first comprehensive presentation of Nabil's photographs of artists, his friends, and himself, and images staged over the past fifteen years.
