Moroccan Trilogy 1950-2020 

31 MARCH – 27 SEPTEMBER 2021  

SABATINI BUILDING - MUSEO NACIONAL CENTRO DE ARTE REINA SOFÍA, MADRID, SPAIN 

Curated by:  Manuel Borja-Villel and Abdellah Karroum 

In collaboration with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Madrid Spain,  Moroccan Trilogy 1950 - 2020 looks at modern and contemporary art and culture in Morocco’s major in urban centres including Tangier, Tetouan and Casablanca, from the immediate post-independence period of the 1950s to the pre-revolutions era of the new millennia.

Divided into three historical timeframes defined by major societal shifts, the exhibition examines the interdisciplinary domains of art, literature, film, architecture, theatre, and music and their personal and professional networks. Each chapter of the trilogy is intended to provide a non-exhaustive historical reading of these diverse, interconnected forms of expression, both intellectual and artistic, and their relationship to socio-political struggles for freedom.

Through artwork, archives, and publications, this exhibition provides a new expanded framework for reading art histories in Morocco that is non-linear, transnational, and political.
