MASS Alexandria was an exhibition that featured video work by seven Egyptian artists: Mahmoud Tareg, Mohamed Al Bakeri, Mohamed Adel Dessouki, Esraa Elfeky, Rania Atef, Soukaina Joual and Tasneem Gad. It was initiated by Berit Schuck, former programme director of MASS Alexandria, a non-profit studio space and study programme based in East Alexandria, Egypt, in response to to the art school closures precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic and the political climate in Egypt.

Seeking a solution to the lack of exhibition opportunities and peer feedback for Egyptian art students, Schuck worked with James Tapsell-Kururangi's curatorial project Papatūnga to present an exhibition of work by seven students at Parnell Project Space, accompanied by a programme of artist interviews published to social media and facilitated feedback sessions. As part of this, a group of students from Whitecliffe College of Art and Design, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, were invited to Parnell Project Space for an afternoon education programme, during which they viewed the works and offered constructive critical responses.
