A museum dedicated to the best Moroccan, North-African and international lens-based and traditional fine art
The Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Arts will focus its collecting across 3 interpretative genres of photography and lens-based media both static and moving: architecture and design, photojournalism, fashion and culture. The museum will build a collection that will allow diverse use both in its exhibition and education programmes.
The museum will also form a hub for education by taking students from Morocco and the region, whose interests are in curatorial studies, museum operations, development etc. and teach them both within the museum, their community and abroad by internships placements.
