A live performance installation created by Hassan Hajjaj, My Rock Stars Experimental – Live! includes performances by a diverse array of international musicians.
A photographer, designer and filmmaker, Hassan Hajjaj is one of Morocco’s preeminent international artists. Entirely self-taught and influenced by a mix of London’s hip-hop and reggae scenes and his North African heritage, Hajjaj has a diverse practice that includes portraiture, installation, performance, fashion and furniture design.
Styled by the artist, including fashion that he has designed himself, Hassan’s chosen “Rock Stars” will perform in front of a backdrop of textiles that recreates the unique framing of his portraits: a live version of his famous My Rock Stars photo and film series.
In My Rock Stars, Hassan deploys his unique vision with hand-selected traditional fabrics, as well as clothes and shoes of his own design, handmade by Moroccan artisans or sourced in local markets. The wide-ranging line up of musicians bridges the culture gap between now and then, us and them, creating a fusion of Moroccan craftsmanship and contemporary performance.
This performance is part of our continuing partnership with The Ford Theatres. Join us for a morning of world music at the beautiful Ford Amphitheater.
