Marrakech Art Fair at the Palace Es Saadi

The second edition of the modern and the contemporary Marrakech Art Fair takes place at the Palace Es Saadi from September 30th to October 3rd 2011, with more than fourteen international galleries.

As last year, the organizers Hicham and Zineb Daoudi have developed, a cultural circuit enrolled in the most emblematic places of Marrakech. In the heart of this circuit, an exhibition called “Images affranchies” (“Liberated Images”) will be presented at the same time as a meeting about contemporary art in the Arab revolutions.

« Images affranchies », an exhibition in which video art and conceptual photography will be in the place of honor

« Images affranchies » is photography and video exhibition conceived by Brahim Alaoui that brings together a selection of Arab contemporary artists. Those ones even though they have absorbed “the culture of image”, they start to free their work from the classical way of representing and from the so-called taboos coming from a presumed iconoclast culture.

The artists combined for this exhibition are: Adel ABIDIN, Leila ALAOUI, Halim AL KARIM, Hicham BENOHOUD, Meriem BOUDERBALA, Mohamed EL BAZ, Nina ESBER, Nicène KOSSENTINI, Amal KENAWY, Mehdi MEDDACI, Youssef NABIL, Moataz NASR, Yazid OULAB, Younès RAHMOUN and Faysal SAMRA.
