Curator and Theme
The master program of Marrakech Biennale 6 will be curated by Reem Fadda, who has been working as the Associate Curator, Middle Eastern Art with the Guggenheim Foundation in New York on their Abu Dhabi Project for the past 5 years.
Fadda’s curatorial approach has largely been more cross-disciplinary and focused on contemporary topics in the Middle East, especially those pertaining to art, architecture, space, history and geopolitics.
For MB6, Fadda is envisioning to expand on a Pan-African vision, one that is mapped through histories theories and practices manifest across the entire continent and beyond. Reem Fadda will develop a conceptual framework around the theme "Traces", according to which a variety of artists and projects will invited to the exhibition.
The final list of exhibition venues and list of participating artists for both core program and partners projects of the Marrakech Biennale 6 will be announced in mid September.
