Contemporary art: The National Museum Foundation highlights the young art scene

This fruitful collaboration between the FNM and the Ministry of Culture is intended as a continuity to carry out cultural projects and provide the city of Rabat with a real cultural program.

Nearly 270 works by young emerging artists will be exhibited in various cultural venues in the capital. These works are part of an operation to acquire works of art carried out between the National Museum Foundation and the Ministry of Culture with the aim of promoting the Moroccan artistic scene.

“This initiative is jointly initiated by two cultural institutions, which have joined forces in the service of hope, youth and solidarity,” says Mehdi Qotbi, president of the National Museum Foundation. For his part, Abdelaziz El Idrissi, director of MMVI, underlines that this fruitful collaboration between the FNM and the Ministry of Culture is a continuation to carry out cultural projects and endow the city of Rabat with a real cultural program.

“With this exhibition we will have an uninformed public, a young public who will discover beautiful works,” he says. Indeed, these works of art will be presented in the form of museum exhibitions in almost all these cultural places, namely the Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMVI), National Museum of Photography and the Bab Rouah galleries, Bab Lekbir and Mohamed El Fassi.

It should be noted that these creations will be exhibited following the signing in July 2020 of three cooperation agreements aimed at deepening the partnership in several areas, namely the loan of around a hundred works by Moroccan artists from the collection not exhibition of the Department of Culture, and a solidarity contribution of 2 million dirhams to the program for the acquisition of works by professional Moroccan artists residing in Morocco.
