Pictorial art all shook up at MACMA

For a few months now, Marrakech has welcomed the light of painters, photographers and craftsmen from all over in its midst. Welcome to the Museum of Art and Culture of Marrakech.

A few weeks after Farid Belkahia's MATHAF official opening, the gallery owner and now famous major patron of the arts Nabil El Mallouki can pride himself of the MACMA's opening on February 2016. Architect Amine Tounsi therefore conceived the Museum of Art and Culture of Marrakech's 400 sqm specifically to house pictorial art in Morocco. It also offers a literary gathering café and a bookshop.

The museum's permanent collection intelligently retells, with a clear touch of modernity, the North African periods of numerous European painters such as Delacroix, Van Dongen or Majorelle. Besides, the museum plans on scheduling narrative exhibitions, on the model of the current one: Naïve, raw and singular arts in Morocco since the 50s, which lasts until June 6th. Pack your bags: from December 2017 onwards, Morocco will be told through movie posters.
