Malhoun is a pluridisciplinary experimental venue combining a gallery space, an international residency program, studios for young Moroccan artists and a member’s club. Founded in 2020 following an exhibition produced by and emerging from Fenduq, Malhoun wishes to ponder the chasms and rifts found between creative fields today, from craftsmanship to visual art, architecture or design. Overall, as a platform centered on knowledge and know-how exchange, following the rhizomatic structure of collective memory and intelligence, Malhoun aims to serve as a catalyst for the meaningful growth of local cultural ecosystems.
Typically, it fosters a yearlong exhibition where members and guests showcase their productions and thoughts by way of a continuum: overlapping organically, items and propositions come and go following the conversations and intuitions of participants, as well as their practical needs.
Exhibitions are usually tailed by ‘witnesses’ invited to follow the production process. Broadly speaking, exhibitions tend to be conjointly conceived with witnesses, and commercial in nature, though it can vary. Instead of openings, a ‘selat al rahim’ is organized the last day of each month, conveying the public to foster the bonds of kinship within the building. The name of all exhibitors is disclosed at the entrance, but not within the space where no captions can be found, allowing a variety of propositions of different status to cohabitate, and preventing easy categorisation.

Malhoun Art Club
The Malhoun Art Club is mainly composed of creatives from the Arts in the broad sense, as well as their guests and patrons. It organizes lectures, studio visits, workshops, visits to art fairs and biennials, accompaniment of artists on production, walks, etc. Its goal is to bring to its members transformative experiences, develop empathy among them in order to refine the local art scene, and nurture creative emancipation and networking across the societal spectrum.
