Etre ici - Parcours artistiques à Tanger
The SSILATE association, since 2018, has been opening new, emblematic and identity places in the city of Tangier, inviting the public to explore the city and meet the Tangiers heritage during the fourth edition of the artistic itinerary ETRE ICI. The latter opens new doors by reinvesting identity, singular, unusual and sometimes unsuspected places of Tangier heritage for artistic encounters. The artists bring the places back to life, take them over, giving them a new reading between past, present and future, new fields of inspiration and action for an eclectic scene. Installations, performances, music, video, readings, dance…
The fifty or so selected artists – visual artists, photographers, sculptors, videographers, sound and digital creators, actors, musicians, singers, writers, dancers – are invited to invest the chosen places to bring them to life for the duration of the event.
This year eight places are open: old school, abandoned boarding house, former Monoprix closed since 1950, bazaar at the end of an alley, unoccupied villa, prison rehabilitated into a museum of contemporary art.
