BY hassan hajjaj:
book launch and meet the artist

13 MACH 2014

With a special music performance by Simo Lagnawi

Now in his mid-career, the acclaimed artist-photographer Hassan Hajjaj has had many lives that inform the work he creates today. This timely publication explores how his upbringing in Morocco and London, his experiences in fashion and interior design, and his adventures in the music industry influence the vibrant colours, joyful spirit, and visual rhythm of his highly sought-after images.

For your signed copy of this book, please do come to Rose Issa Projects on Thursday 13th March between 5 and 7pm and meet Hassan Hajjaj. He will have just returned from his US debut, with solo shows in New York and Los Angeles, where his video work, “My Rock Stars Experimental, Volume I”, is on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) until July this year.
