Jacques Azéma: Une Aventure Poétique

Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech Art

“I love nothing more than a sincere innocence,” said the French artist Jacques Azéma (1910-1979), citing his reason for moving to Morocco. The innocence Azéma refers to is actually a unique opposition—Morocco’s openness to new influences existing alongside its dreamlike self-containment. A new exhibition collects more than 40 drawings and paintings reflecting Azéma’s particular perception of Morocco, while also exploring the impact of his work on Moroccan artists of his time. —J.V.
