Meriem Bennani explores tension + tradition within Moroccan chikha culture in Siham & Hafida at The Kitchen, Sep 13 – Oct 21

12 September 2017

Meriem Bennani is presenting solo exhibition Siham & Hafida at New York’s The Kitchen, opening September 13 and running to October 21. 

Curated by Lumi Tan, the installation of the artist’s 30-minute video follows the lives of two women, Siham and Hafida, whose “intergenerational conflicts regarding the chikha tradition reflect greater shifts in Moroccan culture of the past 50 years.”
Looking at the performance of femininity, religion and social traditions, the film will explore the space of tension within a globalized society between oral practices of chikha musical genre Aita and social media.
