This is the first exhibition of a long series of events highlighting the 20 years of King Mohammed VI’s reign. Entitled “Vingt ans, une œuvre” (Twenty Years, One Work), the collective exhibition of the art gallery L’Atelier 21 Casablanca brings together the works of 21 Moroccan artists: Mo Baala, Fouad Bellamine, Benbouchta Amina, Saâd Ben Cheffaj, Mustapha Boujemaoui, Mounat Charrat, Larbi Cherkaoui, Mohamed El-baz, Bouchta El Hayani, Nabil El Makhloufi, Safaa Erruas, Mohamed Fariji, Majida Khattari, Fouad Maazouz, Najia Mehadji, Mohamed Melehi, Houssein Miloudi, Lamia Naji, Zakaria Ramhani, Abdallah Sadouk and Yamou.
They are artists who revisit, each according to their sensitivity, the twenty years of reign. Poetry, humor, critical gaze, reflection: the atmospheres that stand out from the works are as varied as the themes discussed, as L’Atelier 21 underlines in a statement, recalling how, in twenty years of reign, has Morocco changed from a social, economic, or cultural c point of view.
In fact, the artistic industry has significantly advanced, galleries have emerged, a national museum foundation has been created, and the first national museum dedicated to modern painting and contemporary art was created, the art gallery pointed out, concluding that through this exhibition, it is the Morocco of Mohammed VI that we are revisiting .
