What is this?

Immerse yourself in the essence of Moroccan contemporary art with a private curator-led tour at Comptoir des Mines Galerie. This exclusive experience begins in an iconic Art Deco building from the 1930s, where you're warmly welcomed by the curator. As you explore, the curator unveils the rich history of the building and the gallery's evolution. The journey takes you through various exhibitions, offering insights into the artists' works, techniques, and messages. Each room, including converted apartments and a spacious hangar, tells a unique story, blending contemporary art with historical charm. Interactive and informative, this tour encourages questions, making it a deep dive into the artistic, cultural, and historical aspects of Moroccan art. The experience culminates with a tranquil moment on the rooftop terrace, where you can reflect on the art while enjoying a refreshment, fostering a memorable and personal connection with the art and its context.

What makes this unique?

The Comptoir des Mines Galerie, a vital hub for contemporary art in Marrakech, offers a journey through the heart of Morocco's art scene. Founded in 2016 and directed by renowned art figure Hicham Daoudi, the gallery occupies a historical Art Deco building, once a part of the Comptoir des Mines company. This unique setting forms the backdrop for an array of contemporary art exhibitions, showcasing both emerging and established Moroccan artists. What sets this experience apart is the personalized guidance by a curator team, turning a regular visit into a vibrant dialogue. As you move through the gallery's diverse spaces, you engage with art that is as varied as Morocco itself. The opportunity to spend time in reflection with the curator on the rooftop terrace adds a relaxed yet stimulating dimension to the visit. This is an essential experience for art lovers and cultural enthusiasts.
