Marrakech Biennale *5*
Under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the fifth edition of the Marrakech Biennale poses the question Where are we now? through a dialogue between four disciplines: visual arts, cinema / video, literature and performing arts, the latter a new discipline of the Marrakech Biennale as of 2014. This question can be raised in different fields of the geographical, philosophical and socio-political discourse. 2014 will see the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Marrakech Biennale, which has constantly been building bridges between Morocco and beyond, stimulating a dialogue between cultures through the realm of visual art, literature and cinema.
The art works will be spread between the venues of the 16th century Palais Badii, which was commissioned by the Sultan Al Mansour in 1578, Dar Si Said, which houses the Museum of Moroccan Arts, and the former Bank Al Maghrib in the middle of the Jemaa El Fna square, all locations complementing each other in showcasing the rich architectural heritage of the city. Dutch-Moroccan curator Hicham Khalidi (1972, Kenitra, Morocco) is curating the visual arts exhibition of Marrakech Biennale 5, which will feature more than 40 artists and 20 especially commissioned pieces.
Ediţia a 5-a a Marrakech Biennale va avea loc între 26 februarie – 31 martie 2014.
