Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Art

A Visual Feast: Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Art

The Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Art (MMPVA) stands as an iconic institution showcasing the history of photography, from the 19th century to the present day. Designed by renowned architect David Chipperfield and conceived by philanthropist Keren Ruimy and her family, the museum houses a vast permanent collection of photography, featuring contemporary exhibitions from artists across Africa and around the world.

A World-Class Museum Dedicated to Photography

As the world's largest free-standing museum devoted to photography, MMPVA is poised to attract scholars, students, and visitors from all corners of the globe. The museum's architectural plans include four levels, encompassing galleries, a theater, café, bookstore, and educational facilities. The African Art collection focuses on three central themes: Architecture/Design, Photojournalism, and Fashion/Culture.

A Cultural Landmark in Marrakech

MMPVA has established its temporary residence at Marrakech's Badi Palace while its new home is being constructed. The museum's inaugural exhibition, "10 Contemporary Moroccan Photographers," launched in September 2013, showcasing photographs from its permanent collection by artists such as Yto Barrada, Carole Benitah, Hicham Benouhoud, and Ali Chraibi, among others.

A Vision of Understanding and Tolerance

MMPVA aims to foster greater understanding, tolerance, and cross-cultural exchange through exhibitions and educational programming, making it an essential addition to Africa's cultural landscape. Although MMPVA initially claimed to be the first institution of its kind on the African continent, its more recent press release emphasizes its role as a significant addition to Africa's cultural landscape, while also highlighting its status as the world's largest photography museum.
