Air/Port 2013 is an art exhibition and charity auction by BWI/DAA that is taking place in Essaouira, Morocco from July 5- September 5, 2013 and in Antwerp, Belgium in the summer of 2014, uniting local and international artists and art students who are proud of their beautiful city.
This international exhibition of art is inspired by two prominent features of Essaouira: the city’s omnipresent Atlantic breeze and the vitality of Essaouira’s active port life. The exhibition showcases the work of Moroccan, Belgian and international artists, including that of disadvantaged youth who reside in Essaouira and Antwerp (Belgium), the next stop of the exhibition’s tour in 2014.
The artworks featured in the exhibition will be reproduced on flags and installed along major traffic arteries of both Essaouira and Antwerp, as well as at culturally and historically significant sites of each city. The original artworks will be exhibited in galleries and cultural institutions throughout the duration of the expo.
