Join us at projects+gallery from 5:00 to 8:00pm for the opening of a solo exhibition of work by Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj, featuring new work by Saint Louis artist Basil Kincaid, which will be on view until October 28th, 2017. Refreshments will be provided and the event is free and open to the public.
Known as the "Andy Warhol of Marrakesh," Hassan Hajjaj thrives in a space between cultures, traditions, mediums, and artistic movements. His images vibrate with an energy unique to the contemporary clashes that emerge from a world inundated with global consumption and ever-changing shifts in style. Born in Morocco in 1961, the artist relocated to London in the early 1980s, growing up within the reggae and hip-hop club scenes that defined the underground urban environment. Currently traveling between Morocco and the United Kingdom, Hajjaj endeavors to document the hybrid music, fashion and artistic spirit of both places.
