Upcoming events in Marrakech – the Biennale. Join a crowd of art lovers going to see the Marrakech Biennale – from February 24th to May 8th, 2016. The theme of this year’s event is “Not New Now / Quoi de neuf là”
The Marrakech Biennale, 6th Edition, has made great efforts to build bridges and foster mutual understanding and collaboration between regions in the contemporary art field.
The art scene in Morocco has been growing in recent years and Marrakech, with a number of new modern art galleries, has become the most sought-after and stylish destination in North Africa.
Sometimes an afternoon calls for a cultural outing. While in Marrakech there is ample to see just from wandering the lanes, the cool of an art gallery offers space for quiet reflection. A visit to the serene Black on White gallery is a great choice.
A sleek and modern space, the gallery promotes contemporary art in Morocco via various mediums – from painting, drawing, sculpture and photography to installation, performance and video art. The gallery represents twenty artists and highlights their work through regular exhibitions.
The current show ‘Childhood: Art’ is on display until January 20th. Artists include Florence Arnold, Azrhai Aziz Rashid Bakkar, Benjkan Salah Ahmed Ismael Ben Hicham Benohoud, Bigot Martine, Mahi Binebine, My Youssef El Kahfai, Abdelhaq Elyoussi Alain Gerez Ahmed Hajoubi, Tibari Kantour, Christophe Miralles, Mourabiti Mohamed Hassan Nadim Beatriz Nirtán, Jihan Rihani and Nawal Sekkat.
All of these artists have agreed to relive their childhood through this exhibition, using this quite by Baudelaire as their inspiration: “the toy is the first initiation of the child to the art.” Take a visit to see the results.
