Morocco has many strengths when it comes to the art market. Orientalism and recently African contemporary art are sold there. Between photographs, conceptual art, contemporary art … knowing your style is important to guide your stroll through the galleries in Marrakech.

2. Make your selection among the must-see museums and galleries:

3. Stroll through the streets of the city and discover many incredible street arts all over the medina:

Indeed, art is also found in the streets of Marrakech where you can admire the atypical works of born artists. The district of Guéliz, avenue Victor Hugo, is also famous for its artistic tree path. Rather than pulling up dead trees, artists carved, painted, and decorated them in a modern and classic way.

A very nice walk to go on.

4. Take an interest in the artist:

Many artists bring the city of Marrakech to life.

Are you interested in their work, what is their artistic approach? What are the exhibitions in which they will participate, in what way has Morocco participated in the development of their art?

The Galerie D&CO brilliantly takes up the challenge and has chosen the Kibari brothers, Aziz and Abdel, rising stars of art in Morocco and artists recognized on the international scene.
Just like Larbi Cherkaoui, Fatiha Zemmouri, and Mourabiti, not to mention Sébastien Royez, who does us the honor of exhibiting his paintings in modern technique and raw colors in our Art lounge.

Another artist also tells us about his greatness through his works, it is the painter and sculptor Mahi Binebine, his exhibition will take place from December 26 to February 27 at the Comptoir des Mines and it is an event not to be missed. to fail.
