After 8 years of presence, Artcurial, the first French auction house, has just opened a subsidiary in Morocco, a first in Africa. The offices are based in the Hivernage district of Marrakech and will sell his Orientalist paintings and African contemporary art, “two important specialties of the house in direct relationship with the African continent”. “The auction house will also be organizing collections sales highlighting the great wealth of Moroccan decorative arts, in areas as wide-ranging as ceramics, glassware, furniture, textiles, jewelery and even more old weapons,” says Articurial.
A Moroccan team of 3 headed by Soraya Abid, will manage the daily activity of Artcurial in Morocco and the organization of its sales program. Note that the house will hold its next sales end of the year on December 30 in Marrakech.
