Past Exhibition / Hassan Hajjaj
Hassan Hajjaj | Pop-Up Exhibition
10-17 February 2017
To celebrate GPP Photo Week 2017, The Third Line is pleased to present a pop-up exhibition with work by Hassan Hajjaj. The exhibition will show works from several of Hassan’s series, including My Rockstars: Volume 1 from 2012 and Noss Noss from 2007.
Much like Hajjaj’s personal exploration, the photographic series, is an on-going examination of belonging in an increasingly globalized society where boundaries of cultural identity – most notably African, Arabic and Western – are constantly being pushed. Using traditional mats and fabrics as well as found objects that he sources in local markets of his hometown Marrakech, Hajjaj bridges the gap between past and present and various cultures, creating pieces that seamlessly merge folkloric elements into Western contemporary art.
