The "post-tribal" exhibition is titled 'Memorandum of the Unknown Path'
Iranian multidisciplinary artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian has announced his upcoming "post-tribal" exhibition for Marrakech's Contemporary African Art Fair, opening on 21 February, 2020. The exhibition, Memorandum of the Unknown Path, which was nominated for the Jameel Prize 2021, is a site-specific installation that will fill the main halls of the Théâtre Royal de Marrakech.
An attempt to explore cross-cultural themes that are shared between Morocco and Iran, Memorandum of the Unknown Path will include various artworks, including Banners of the Unbanished, a series of textiles that combine traditional materials, such as Touareg raw camel wool, with "post-tribal symbols". The piece is meant to transform "tent elements" into a work of art, while conveying a message of urgent and universal unity.
