step off the streets of bushwick into a whirlwind of colors, textures and sounds as you experience morocco as never before. intricate rugs that were handwoven by women artisans in rural morocco are juxtaposed against north african hip hop and gnawa beats that speak to the younger generation’s current struggle with illegal immigration, unemployment, and identity. this installation will transport you to a morocco that is both starkly rural as well as cutting-edge urban as ancient crafts coexist beside contemporary forms of musical expression to provide a more nuanced image of morocco. all rugs are for sale as part of Kantara, a fair trade rug venture.
