Pop Up Art Shop – Fez medina, December 2011
Jess Stephens and Culture Vultures once again venture into the ancient medina ofFez providing an explosion of visual arts and activities under the concept of a small pop up art shop. What, for the rest of the year is an indiscrete hanout on Talla k’bira selling random items such a football posters, plastic shoes and processed meat turns into a contemporary pop up art shop, for two weeks only.
Five artists are on the galleries showcase, three from Fez, ( Omar Chennafi, Mohammed Charcaoui and Hisham Tazi), one from Catalunya (Omar Lula) and Jess who is originally from Wales UK. Mediums cover photography, calligraphy, graffiti and jewellery; all fired and inspired by their immediate surroundings. All art works are for sale.
This vibrant venture is enhanced and spiced up by the provision of a silent disco by sponsor Plan-it Fez …inspiring your stay. A handful of wireless headphones tuned into the dance/funk set, boom out only to those wearing them, whilst to all those around not a beat is heard. The silent disco takes place at the pop up from 18th to the 31st of December, from 5 – 6 p.m. every day. Don’t miss out on being part ofFez medinas pioneering arts projects.
From Boujloud pass the Bouanania madrassa on you left, go through the tunnel and walk a few minutes along the street of artisanal products, the last hanout of that strip of shops on the right hand side is where you will come across this pop up venture that opens from 10 – 6 p.m. until the last day of 2011.
