1. “Look on the palm of Marrakech”
The Museum Mohammed VI for the Civilization of Water in Morocco-Aman organizes a temporary exhibition under the theme “Look on the palm of Marrakech” by the photographer artist Mohamed Boussacsou from 30 March to 30 May 2019. The exhibition is the result of a long and meticulous work, which allowed the artist to grasp and reveal the aesthetics of the palm tree, through the cycle of seasons, from dawn to dusk. And now all the aesthetic manifestations of the palm reveal their secrets to the artist, revealing at the same time the relationships that the palm has with the light, the sky, the atmosphere and the degree of coloring of this tree with the shade. In addition to the aesthetic dimension, the exhibition captures the state of the palms, oscillating between beauty and misery. The exhibition challenges awareness of the danger that threatens this endangered natural heritage. Thus, the main purpose of this exhibition is to show the beauty of the palm tree, and to show its necessity in the eco-system of the oasis. On the visitor’s side, the exhibition aspires to educate the eye to look up, for better enjoyment of the horizon and to free the eye.

We aim, through this traveling exhibition, to show the splendor and beauty of Moroccan fauna through photos. This exhibition contains photos of birds, reptiles and mammals taken from all regions of Morocco by the members of our association (Moroccan Wildlife Photographers). By this action, we intend to encourage them to think about ways to preserve our rich natural heritage, which is extremely threatened by the human activities that represents a real danger for many animal species.
