The Reina Sofía National Art Museum is organising this exhibition, which aims to showcase Morocco’s cultural evolution from 1950 to the present day as reflected in 250 works of art. Visitors will discover aspects of the intimate, private world of Moroccan society as well as the different ways that the country’s artists work.
The works exhibited reflect three historical periods: the transition to independence (1950-1969), the so-called Years of Lead (1970-1999), and from then until the present day (2000-2020). A wide diversity of artistic expression highlights the role played by art in giving meaning to reality, with the aim of achieving contemporary cultural, social and human progress. A rich experience awaits the visitor, as together with these works a series of talks, round table discussions and workshops will be organised to provide a deeper insight into Moroccan culture. This set of events entitled “Entretanto” and some of the artists whose works are on display will be among the participants. These include Nadal prize winner Najat El Hachmi, cultural researchers such as Driss Ksikes and Salah Malouli, and visual artist M’barek Bouhchichi.
