Extension of Outsiders/Insiders!

Due to its success and the enthusiasm of its visitors, MACAAL is extending the Outsiders/Insiders? exhibition until 14 November 2021!

Outsiders/Insiders? presents a vast selection of artworks by the singular artists of Essaouira, such as Mohamed Tabal, Ali Maimoun, Regragui Bouslai and Abdelmalek Berhiss, from the dual collections of Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober/Museo Sa Bassa Blanca and Fondation Alliances. Exploring a variety of mediums, previously unseen works, and archives, this exhibition aims to reveal how this small port city, with its history of multiple influences, became the breeding ground for an atypical creative scene.

Featuring an important selection of works from artist from Essaouira, the exhibition attempts to reveal how a small port town, exposed to a multitude of influences, became a fertile breeding ground for a singular creative scene.
