Hassan Hajjaj: The Path - Virtual Exhibition at New Art Exchange

About

Free virtual exhibition

The Path by Hassan Hajjaj presents a unique and timely consideration of culture and identity in the modern, globalised world. Born in Morocco, Hajjaj moved to Britain aged 12. He works today between both countries.

Hajjaj's artworks are characterised by an explosion of colour, pattern, appropriated brand logos and found objects. Signs, symbols and people from around the globe collide without hierarchy or the presumed superiority of a Eurocentric worldview. In the Main Gallery the Dakka Marrakchia collection exemplifies this approach. Here we see women posing on the streets and rooftops of Marrakech like fashion models. Dressed in camouflage pattern djellabas and Louis Vuitton print face veils, their stance and style challenges the Western stereotype of Islamic women as suppressed and disempowered.
