EXTENSION OF THE EXHIBITION UNTIL JAN. 5th, 2020
After interesting themselves to contemporary Japanese, Chilean and Caribbean art, the galerie 193 continues its art world tour by presenting a contemporary scene of moroccan art.
From October 24th to December 15th, the new gallery in the Haut Marais dedicated to foreign contemporary art will host the work of 7 Moroccan photographers, including the super star Hassan Hajjaj, who will, at the same time, benefit from a major retrospective at the Maison Européenne of Photography.
Each of them, in their own way, give us a portrait, a snapshot of their Moroccan reality. Multiculturalism is undoubtedly a vector of hindsight on this one but brings a vision and a respect of the imprints of a certain pride, a touch of nostalgia and a frank lucidity. Fragments of imagination, presented here, in a simple will to pay tribute to what relates these seven photographs: Morocco.
