First Edition of the Marrakech Art Fair will Take Place October 9 to 11, 2010
MARRAKECH.- Some forty European and Moroccan galleries will be meeting with collectors and art aficionados for three days to present their discoveries. On the agenda: modern art, contemporary art, and design, a moment’s stroll staged between the patio and garden through creations and works of art from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The launch of the Marrakech Art Fair will be accompanied by a program of cultural and artistic events: exhibitions at cultural centers, visits to artists’ workshops, discoveries of private collections, etc.

An educational program on art market trends will round off these events.

To give ample attention to art de vivre, the Marrakech Art Fair is also preparing a “Tournament of the Galleries,” an art-milieu golf tournament in which the winner will receive a trophy made by a Moroccan artist.

The Marrakech Art Fair will become the main annual art market event in the Kingdom of Morocco, thus reaching beyond its borders and appearing on the international calendar of contemporary art fairs.

Marrakech Art Fair organizers
This event was born out of collaboration between Moroccan and French players on the art market, who joined forces in order to provide Morocco with an exchange platform for gallery owners, artists, and collectors.

Caroline Clough Lacoste, Henri Jobbé Duval, Brahim Alaoui, and Hicham Daoudi partnered to make this unprecedented artistic event a reality. They have the support of an honorary committee consisting of players from the local and international cultural scene.

Application packets will be available starting on February 1, 2010.
