In January this year, a small group of artists from various corners of the world with diverse disciplines came together to draw inspiration from the pilgrimage event Sidi Ali Ben Hamdouch. This rich week long artist’s residency around pilgrimages, offerings, and ceremonies surpassed all expectations.
The showcase of the works inspired by the Mouseem will open on July the 2nd under the umbrella of the French Institute in Fez as an exhibition and a performance. Culture Vultures is proud to present the works of Hollis Bennett, Rene Kladzyk, Camilea Hakim, Vanessa Bonnin and Jess Stephens .

Mohammed Ben Hamdouchi
The local Council of Sidi Ali
The French Institute, Fez.
Jilala and Hamadcha
