Ramadan’art, exceptional exhibition at Casablanca’s « Villa Camembert »

Written by FDM

The mysterious Villa Ronde in Casablanca, known as « Villa Camembert », is transformed, until June 7, into an art gallery to host an artistic and cultural event called « Ramadan’art ». Works by Moroccan artist Chaibia, the inevitable Andy Warhol or Jilali Gharbaoui will be on display.

For the first time, Villa Ronde is open to Casablanca natives via the organization of Ramadan’art initiated by K-Events agency. From May 22 to June 7, the splendid villa hosts a magnificent exhibition gathering the works of the great master of Pop Art, Andy Warhol , the Moroccan artist Chaibia, a figure of Moroccan naïve art , and the painter Jilali Gharbaoui.

But the exhibition aside, the enigmatic « villa camembert » as nicknamed by the locals due to its cylindrical and flat shape, opens its doors. Nestled on the hill of Anfa and located on the Lido Boulevard, this house was built in 1962 by German architect Wolfgang Ewerth. It is built on thin piles, seeming to float above the garden. From above, the villa boasts an exceptional view of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as a unique interior. It is ultra minimalist and is organized around a circular patio. In short, a must see!

Open: from May 22nd to June 7th included, from noon to 5pm, and in the evening from 9pm to 11.30pm.
