“Not New Now” is curated by Reem Fadda and assistant curator Ilaria Conti. The central exhibition also includes curatorial interjections by Omar Berrada, who is curating Memory Games: Ahmed Bouanani Now, a multifarious engagement with the work and the archive of writer-filmmaker Ahmed Bouanani; and Salma Lahlou and Fatima-Zahra Lakrissa, who are curating a section on the avant-garde art movement, the Casablanca School.
