Breaking Borders: Group Exhibition at Tate St Ives

Sophie Kazan / Featured Insights

Celebrating the birth of Moroccan contemporary art, The Casablanca Art School exhibition at Tate St Ives reveals the colourful innovation of a glorious era in the country’s artistic history.

Once in a while there is an exhibition that is so vibrant and multi-layered that it offers endless avenues for discussion and interpretation. The Casablanca Art School show at the Tate Gallery in St Ives is one such case. Curated by Morad Montazami and Madeleine de Colnet, with Anne Barlow, director of Tate St Ives, this exhibition is bursting with colour, paintings, ceramics, all manner of video footage, posters, books and archival material, as well as architectural models, carpets, decorative wooden beams and Arabic calligraphy.
