About the Exhibition:
The YMA is a travelling group exhibition that represents young Moroccan artists working in different media and concepts that are inspired by their own unique environments. Curated by Madiha Sebbani, a multidisciplinary artist who graduated from the National Institute of Fine Arts in Tetouan, Morocco, she also curated the seventh edition of the Mastermind Art exhibition at the Venise Cadre Gallery in Casablanca, Morocco in 2018. The exhibition commences at the Sulger-Buel Gallery Specialised in the contemporary art of Africa and its Diaspora in London in May 2019 with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in the United Kingdom and will then be transported to the KFW-DEG Bank in Cologne in June 2019 as part of their cultural program which had invited Morocco as the feature country this year.
The exhibition aims at fostering a young Moroccan contemporary art scene through a multidisciplinary exhibition of artists from the same generation. The goal of the exhibition is to showcase young creative talent and the artist’s sensibilities as both African and global citizens.
