Event: Upcoming exhibition - Maroc, couleur désert (Morocco, desert colour).
Consisting of over 100 rugs, blankets and cushions woven by the Aït Khebbach - a semi-nomadic Amazigh (Berber) people living along the border with Algeria, the exhibition highlights the cultural and personal significance of these woven pieces, through multimedia arts such as film, photography and music, and the women who create them.
Each life-size photograph taken by Serge Anton reveals not only the artistic tapestry of each textile, but places the woman responsible for its creation in front of her work as a way to give credit where credit is due.
Details: 30 April - 25 August 2014
Musée Bargoin, Clermont-Ferrand, France.
