Collecting and Supporting Contemporary Art in Morocco and Beyond

This talk looked at three current projects based in Morocco that support and develop multiple and diverse forms of artistic production both in that country and from the broader African continent.

Through an informal conversation between a curator, a collector and an art fair director, the evening explores the similarity of aims, and differences in methodologies between the recent 1-54 Art Fair in Marrakesh, the forthcoming Casablanca Biennial and the newly inaugurated Museum of Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL). These examples will provide a springboard to explore the present situation, urgencies and possible futures in relation to the art market, public institutions and art ecologies in the region.

Speakers: Christine Eyene, Touria El Glaoui, and Othman Lazraq. Moderated: Rose Lejeune

This event is part of Delfina Foundation's Collecting as Practice thematic programme.
