Inspired by the chaotic bazaars of Morocco, “SOUK: And You Shall Find” dwells upon the intersection between texture, color, and form in a variety of media, from vintage textiles to contemporary painting. While reconsidering the interplay between fabric and visual art, the exhibition will also challenge traditional modes of exhibition curation by reconfiguring the gallery space into a modern facsimile of the Moroccan souk. Maintaining the marketplace’s historical significance, physically and economically, as a site of commerce and counterpoint to the present-day art fair, “SOUK” will transform the conventional art-viewing experience into a sense-intensive encounter, through private booths, curatorial collaborations, and the atypical presentation of artworks, objects, and wares.
