RASHID & ROSETTA is a web art project on the theme of the Rosetta Stone, the famous Egyptian archeological artifact that played a central role in the decipherming hieroglyphs. The project consists primarily of an online exhibition of internet-based artworks created by six artists from Egypt and Canada: Hadil Nazmy (Alexandria), Skawennati Fragnito (Montreal), Andrew Forster (Montreal), Heba Farid (Cairo), Rehab El Sadek (Alexandria) and Isabelle Bernier (Montreal).

Conceived and curated by Isabelle Bernier and Salah D. Hassan, RASHID & ROSETTA is presented in collaboration with STUDIO XX and OBORO. It has received funding through a Media Arts Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts and from the Public Humanities Collaborative at Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA.
