The Marrakech Biennale in Context 
Carson Chan & Nadim Samman (Eds.)
The first major trilingual (English, Arabic and French) festival in North Africa to focus on cutting-edge contemporary art, literature and film, the Marrakech Biennale seeks to build cultural bridges through discussions with and among artists in a wide range of disciplines. This copiously illustrated collection of texts accompanying “Higher Atlas,” the visual arts exhibition at the 2012 Biennale, brings together the latest thinking on the history and contemporary reality of exhibition-making in North Africa and in particular, Morocco. Published in English and French, with an online edition in Arabic to follow, the catalog offers a window into North Africa’s vibrant but still little-known contemporary arts community. Texts by Atlas curators, Carson Chan and Nadim Samman, along with twelve additional contributors.
