MACAAL is delighted to announce the exhibition Outsiders/Insiders?  Essaouira artists, Fondation Alliances and Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober collections, which will open to the public from March 11th to July 25th ,2021. The exhibition will present an important selection of works from artist originating from Essaouira such as Mohamed Tabal, Ali Maimoun, Regragui Bouslai and Abdelmalek Berhiss. Through a variety of media, previously unseen artworks and archives, Outsiders/Insiders? attempts to reveal how a small port town, exposed to a multitude of influences, became a fertile soil for the rise of a singular creative scene.

The museum’s collection, consisting of digital art, painting, sculpture and video, illustrates the Fondation Alliances’ commitment to providing universally accessible contemporary art, while supporting cultural development in Morocco.
