MEMPHIS BROOKS MUSEUM OF ART:
Hassan Hajjaj: My Rock Stars
May 26, 2016 – September 4, 2016
This exhibition showcases Moroccan-born, UK-based art Hassan Hajjaj and the eclectic group of nine musicians from around the world whom the artist sees as his own personal “rock stars.” The exhibition features the artist’s video of these musicians, composed of nine separately-filmed performances each in the same compositional format as accompanying photographs. The video and related photographs are being presented in a salon environment designed by Hajjaj to evoke the color, style, and energy of a contemporary Moroccan marketplace.
