Event Details

Join us for an evening of virtual conversation with legendary Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj, self-taught photographer, cross-cultural interpreter, and creator of the groundbreaking portrait series “My Rock Stars.”

These events are presented collaboratively by The Betsy Hotel, Florida International University, Miami Beach Urban Studios, and other community partners.

Known as the "Andy Warhol of Marrakech”, Hassan Hajjaj grew up in London’s cosmopolitan culture inspired by an evolving music and fashion landscape. In the 90's, while assisting on a fashion shoot in Morocco (where he was born in 1961) he recognized the predominance of white faces and European traditions at shoots, deciding then and there to capture and amplify the richness of his own culture. Hajjaj’s collection, My Rock Stars,  celebrates eclectic world performers through staged portraits and sculptured frames that are infused by the vibrancy of Morrocan-infused multiculturalism. Hajjaj's work is in many major art collections, and he is represented by Yossi Milo Gallery, NYC. His work will be on exhibition at The Betsy during the 2020/21 season.
