There are heaps of good galleries to visit in Marrakech. In fact, visitors could come with the aim of visiting only art spaces and museums in Marrakech – perhaps with a little eating and shopping squeezed in – and they would not leave disappointed.
One gallery that really stands out is David Bloch. There are two great shows coming up this winter that we’re keen to tell you about and the first is Larbi Cherkaoui who will present his recent work from November 8 to December 3, 2013.
A young Moroccan artist (born in 1972), he is a particularly talented and creative calligrapher. Arabic letters are designed to become abstract and lyrical through the warm colours and the pigments used. Words used to describe his work include ‘symbolic’, ‘heritage’ and ‘cultural.’ This will be a must-see show and we’re looking forward to it.
When this exhibition finishes, the gallery will present the work of world-famous photographer Steve McCurry (5th December-4th January). Born in Pennsylvania, McCurry made many trips to India and for the next 30 years he became one of the world’s best known contemporary photographers.
He has won the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and a record four first prize World Press Photo awards. Don’t miss the chance to see some of his earliest works here in Marrakech!
