Showcase of Africa, beneficed by an unavoidable visibility, Marrakech has the ambition to play a role increasingly important on the international art scene. Created by the Montresso* Foundation, the Artists Residence Jardin Rouge in its innovative artistic, qualitative and sincere already widely honored by the national and international specialized press, wanted alongside local actors to help the ocher city to play this role of prominent position.
A genuine cultural crossroads, Jardin Rouge is now a place of exchanges and sharing. Its spacious structure is conceived to receive accomplished artists, experts and art lovers willing to mingle with the site’s life for a few days in order to make young resident artists benefit of their various experiences. Private events of the artist’s end of residency are regularly organized to offer artists the reward to confront Moroccan and international amateur’s judgments.
Completely redesigned, rebuilt or restored, the old agricultural buildings now house the reception’s structures and workshops that can comfortably receive the selected artists from around the world in residence. On the same site, the Montresso* Foundation inaugurates this year 2016 a dedicated space to contemporary art which aims to become one of the highest place of artistic development in the region.
