The "African Period" of Mohammed Kacimi was exhibited at Muce de Marseille



The exhibition is devoted to the "African Period" of Muhammad Kacimi (1942-2003), the top of his work, which has seen him break through Western art and the various aesthetic trends that have influenced him during his career, opening up a new, more personal way characterized by expression without limitation and increasingly transdisciplinary.

Through the selection of sample works and significant archival documents (325 pieces of paintings, sculptures, as well as archives: manuscripts, lyrics, drawings, photographs, videos), this exhibition reveals the decisive role of this visual artist, a real smuggler who allowed new generations of artists from Arabic world move to a new state of affairs, living its own cultural roots: the "African transition".

Mohamed Kacimi is one of the most significant Moroccan artists in the post-war era. An innovative and committed artist, stimulus and principal witness of the globalization of contemporary Arabic art, has largely influenced the development of the artistic scene of his country and served as a model for many young Maghreb artists who are now internationally recognized.
