Coinciding with the 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 color. 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. It is the first time his work is shown in Africa, in Morocco, a country he discovered many years ago, and where he lives and works several months a year today.
