Al Maaden Sculpture Park
The Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL) was established as an independent, not-for-profit contemporary art institution that promotes African art through its exhibition and education programme in Marrakech. The Al Maaden Sculpture Park is a cornerstone of this endeavour. This art-filled landscape is located within the Al Maaden Golf Resort in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains.
This site can be explored on foot, by bicycle—these are available at the entrance—or in a golf cart with a cultural mediator. For the creation of the sculpture garden, MACAAL Invited several Moroccan and international artists from countries including China and Argentina to come up with site-specific works in harmony with the land. Striking sculptures here include Wooden Crystal by Egyptian artist Moataz Nasr, the Nomad installation by Canadian artist Jean Brilliant and Fly Away, Swim Closer II steel butterflies by Sunil Gawde from India.
