EXHIBITIONS

Comptoir des Mines Galerie is a new contemporary art center based in Marrakech, Morocco.

Comptoir des Mines Galerie is a permanent art space where several exhibitions are held all year round. It aspires to work alongside the best artists on the continent, helping them carry out their projects and giving them the greatest possible visibility.
Its programming promotes different forms of cultural interactions, through exhibitions as well as “carte blanche” and residency programs. In order to promote research and creation, several studio apartments are made available for artists.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

Exhibition Mohamed Arejdal
From December 28th, 2019 to March 03st, 2020

This major exhibition with a museum dimension stems from a desire to defend an alternative vision of art in Morocco, and to offer another reading of the notion of a “Great South”. No longer limited to a spatial territory or to a geography of the Third World, the “Great South” put forward by the artist would find more meaning in an aggregate of customs, human practices and cultures that have become “minority” which stand out from a “Western definition”. The works which mark out the major phases of the exhibition’s route are all imprinted with traces of the living, the sacred or ancestral customs, just as they represent fragments of this imaginary “Great South” endangered by the rhythm of an imposed modernity.

MOHAMED AREJDAL

Mohamed Arejdal was born in 1984, Guelmim, south of Morocco. Passionate about drawing and sculpture, he held an amateur exhibition at the age of 17. An early school leaver, the attempted unsuccessfully to make a clandestine crossing to the Canary Islands. After he was turned back to Morocco, he resumed his studies and the joined the National Institut of Fine Arts in Tetouan, where he graduated in 2009. Mohamed Arejdal had been able to lay the foundations for a multidisciplinary practice through which he explores the linkages between social groups as part of his travels and human interactions. His artistic performances hold a very important place in his work and help him engage the public on his status as an artist or on the meaning of powefrul symbols.
