In Marseille, an exhibition on the last ten years of the life of the Moroccan painter Mohammed Kacimi salutes his pioneering role and extreme freedom.

Blue, black, ocher. In the beautiful light of the room of Fort Saint-Jean, the colors cherished by the Moroccan painter Mohammed Kacimi (1942-2003) are offered in their raw purity, as extracted from the landscape that can be seen outside, where the look embraces both the hot stone of Marseille and the Mediterranean ultramarine. Until March 3, the Mucem welcomes here the exhibition "Kacimi, 1993-2003, an African transition", dedicated to the last years of the artist. Neither walls nor walls, nor breaks in perspective: the works chosen by the commissioner Nadine Descendre are offered in one piece in the room. For everyone to decide on their journey, according to mood or envy.
