Marrakech International Biennale: contemporary art in all its forms
Hotels, riads and galleries - the second contemporary art biennale is coming to Marrakech.
From 16th to 19th December, exhibitions and seminars will give art lovers a rewarding journey through contemporary creativity.
The festivities will begin with the Salon d’Hiver. This year, this section of the Marrakech International Biennale aims to introduce the public to innovative artistic practices including installations and videos. Guest artists have been invited from Morocco, Iraq and France.
A series of opening events will be held over four days. These begin with a photography exhibition by Catherine Bendayan in Dar Chérifa. Opening events will then take place for Ahmed Ben Ismael at the Galerie Noir sur Blanc, for Larbi Cherkaoui at the David Bloch Gallery and for Sahbi Chtioui at the Sofitel.
Consideration of art will also have a place. Researchers, critics and academics will take part in a seminar focussing on Abdelkébir Khatibi whose writings strongly influenced Moroccan creativity.
