Contemporary Moroccan Art

A new art space called “Villa Matisse” opened this November in Quartier Gueliz, Marrakech.  The space, which has been created to exhibit contemporary Moroccan art, will also serve as cultural center. 

Having previously opened the Matisse Art Gallery in Marrakech and Casablanca, two friends Youssef Nabil and El Mallouk Falaky opened this new space to provide "a place of choice in contemporary Moroccan art”.  According to its founders Villa Matisse will host art exhibitions, video projections and is intended as a platform for meetings and cultural exchanges by hosting debates, poetry, readings and discussions on various forms of creativity.  The inaugural exhibition was attended by several Moroccan artists: Amina Benbouchta, Mounat Charrat, Safaa Erruas, Jamila Lamrani Echaïr Hassan, Hassan Darsi and Mahi Binebine.

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
