It has started again for the Tangier and Tetouan sites of the French Institute of Morocco (IFM). The resumption of cultural activities was announced at a press conference by the management of said sites, with the main sign being the reopening of the Delacroix gallery in Tangier.
For Olivier Galan, director of the French Institute of Morocco – Tangier and Tetouan sites, the reopening of the Delacroix gallery after a year of closure is an opportunity for the Tangier and Tetouan sites of the IFM to restart their activities with the participation of many artists.
The goal, he said, is to make discover, through this gallery, young talents, while presenting visual arts in the broad sense with photography, graphics and plastic arts.
It is also a matter of ensuring that the Delacroix gallery shines through the artists it welcomes, but also through partnerships with major galleries, French national museums, as well as local actors and associations, has added Olivier Galan, who underlined “the importance of democratizing art” and of making it understood both through materials made available to teachers, through guided tours, as well as through workshops.
The resumption of cultural activities at the IFM’s Tangier and Tetouan sites was also marked by the presentation of the exhibition “Silhouettes” by the painter and sculptor, Gérard Testa, which will be open to the public from February 27 to 31. March at the Delacroix gallery.
