Maroc: ouverture du premier musée d'art moderne et contemporain Le musée Mohammed VI d'art moderne et contemporain (MMVI), premier musée d'envergure construit par le Maroc "depuis l'indépendance", selon ses responsables, a ouvert ses portes mercredi à Rabat, après dix années de travaux. Inauguré dès mardi par le roi, lui-même collectionneur d’œuvres, il s'agit également du premier musée du pays dédié à l'art moderne et contemporain. Situé dans le centre de la capitale, l'édifice d'architecture andalouse classique aura nécessité un budget de près de 17 millions d'euros. Il abritera durant six mois une exposition inaugurale intitulée "1914-2014: cent ans de création", regroupant quelque 400 œuvres de 150 artistes marocains, ont indiqué à la presse ses responsables. Parmi ces œuvres, celles de l'artiste-peintre Farid Belkahia, décédé le mois dernier, mais aussi de Mohamed Chabaa, Mohamed Kacimi, Chaïbia Tallal ou Hassan El Glaoui, exposées pour la première fois dans un même musée.

Masterpieces from all epochs in the history of art are on permanent display here, including paintings by Jan van Eyck, Pieter Bruegel, Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, and Jan Vermeer van Delft. The gallery is especially proud of its strong collection of German and Italian painting from the 13th to 16th century and painting from the Low Countries dating from the 15th to 17th century. The paintings in the collection have been on show in their present home at the Kulturforum since 1998. The design proposals for the Gemäldegalerie’s new building were submitted in an architectural competition in 1986, with the contract awarded to the architects Hilmer & Sattler the following year.
