Morocco's National Museum Foundation (FNM) is preparing for a major exhibition of African art and culture in Rabat. The exhibition, entitled "Afrique en Capitale", will open on March 28th and run through until April 28th, 2017
The major multidisciplinary artistic event is being prepared in the wake of King Mohammed VI's speech at the 28th African Union summit, the FNM said, and will include exhibitions, concerts, film screenings, street art and conferences.
"It will host a whole continent of vibrant and contemporary creativity, positioning Rabat, "the City Light", as a great cultural capital of Africa, claims the FNM. "The work already begun by the Foundation for several years to enhance the Moroccan heritage abroad is now naturally extended to a continental dimension," said FNM President Mehdi Qotbi.
