Younès Rahmoun

Younès Rahmoun (b. 1975 in Tétouan, Morocco, where he lives and works) is one of the most widely exhibited North African artists of his generation. He and his art school cohort were the first in the country to have formal training in “l’art contemporain,” thanks to his mentor, Faouzi Laatiris.

Recent museum exhibitions include Little Worlds, Complex Structures, VCUarts – Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar (2018), De la mer à l’océan, L’appartement 22, Rabat (2016). His work has recently been shown at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), the Tripostal (Lille), the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), L’heure rouge, the Dakar Biennale (2018) and Viva Arte Viva, the 57th Venice Biennale (2017).
