Before Our Eyes: Cartographies of the Rif
SPAIN
BARCELONA  •  Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona  •  24 January - 18 May 2014
 
 
The Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona presents the exhibition Before Our Eyes. Other Cartographies of the Rif, in which a specific geographic region – the Rif Mountains in northern Morocco – becomes a springboard from which to discover a place and a specific way of making, understanding and conceiving artistic production that goes beyond institutional and commercial networks. The exhibition, which is in line with the Museum’s ongoing interest in contemporary art from the southern Mediterranean area, includes works by individual artists as well as pieces that have been anonymously or collectively produced. Through a selection of recent and specifically commissioned works arising from expeditions and artist residencies in the Rif region, the exhibition offers a series of investigations on the subject, the work of art as document and the work as object.
