Blue Moon of Morocco
David Zwirner is pleased to present Blue Moon of Morocco, featuring new and recent work by Marcel Dzama, on view at the gallery’s Paris location. The exhibition includes collages and drawings by the artist that were inspired by his travels in Morocco.
Travel has become increasingly important in Dzama’s art, as he seeks to create works informed by both the distinctive cultures he has immersed himself in and his own subjective experiences.
In 2018, invited by Louis Vuitton Editions to create a Travel Book, Dzama traveled to Morocco, visiting cities, seaside towns, mountainous villages, and desert communities. He charted a path that included stops in Tangier, Essaouira, Chefchaouen, Fez, Beni Mellal, Marrakech, and the Agafay Desert.
