Because of the Ramadan, the soft opening of the exhibition will take place from April 14 from 19:30 – 20:30 with an inspiring online talk show.
During a table conversation, host Myriam Sahraoui of DutchCulture, author and guest curator Abdelkader Benali and Stefan van Raay, director of the Cobra Museum, will discuss the origin of modern and contemporary Moroccan art.
