There’s no better way to get a handle on visual art, cinema and video, literature, performing art and architecture than to get involved with the Marrakech Biennale. Under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, and attracting an international and local audience, the fifth edition of Marrakech’s Biennale asks “Where are we now?” This theme explores where Marrakech finds itself in relation to Morocco and Africa; as well as looking at its deep connections – via history, economy, culture and the media – with the Middle East, Europe, Americas and Asia.
Set to launch on February 26th, 2014, the event promises to bring together local, regional and international audiences in order to examine this key question.
As well as several curated projects, smaller, fringe projects will pop up across the city during the event. Past participants have included musicians like Coco Rosie, writers like Ben Okri and prize-winning director Faouzi Bensaidi. All in all, we think it’s a particularly great time to be in Marrakech.
To buy tickets: VIP tickets, the Friends of the Biennale and the MB Patrons Packages, are now online. Tickets are limited.
Day passes and week passes will be available from the box office beginning February 1st, 2014.
