Concierge.com's insider take:

Cairo's most cutting-edge contemporary art space is spread between two buildings: an old Jewish mansion and a restored car mechanics' workshop, both opposite an abandoned 19th-century palace just off Talaat Harb Square. Exhibitions of photography, video installations, painting, and mixed media, along with lectures, experimental film, and music, often take on the challenge of defining a modern Middle Eastern identity. Ask to see work by the Islamic historian and artist Hoda Lutfi, who makes collages of old shisha pipe tongs, plastic dolls, and other found objects from Cairo's junk souks.

Open Saturdays through Wednesdays 10 am to 2 pm and 6 to 9pm, Fridays 6 to 9 pm.
