Coinciding with 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair in Marrakech, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent-Marrakech presents Brice Marden: MOROCCO, an exhibition dedicated to the work of the renowned American artist Brice Marden. Since beginning his career in the 1960s, Marden has continuously refined and extended the traditions of lyrical abstraction. Experimenting with self-imposed rules, limits, and processes, and drawing inspiration from his extensive travels, Marden combines the diagrammatic formulations of Minimalism, the immediacy of Abstract Expressionism, and the intuitive gesture of calligraphy in his exploration of gesture, line and colour. The exhibition gathers more than 60 works, from oil painting on canvas to works on paper, including several produced in Morocco and never before seen by the public.
This is the first time Marden’s work has been shown in Africa, in Morocco, a country he discovered many years ago, and where he still lives and works for several months a year.
