Letters of Intent

21.07.2010 | by Marisa Mazria Katz

In the fall of 2009 I ventured up to the Edwynn Houk Gallery to meet with artist Lalla Essaydi. I had just come back from spending a month in Casablanca, so there was much to discuss with the Moroccan native–culture, art, politics. It was a wonderful opportunity to dive into her work and also, in a way, prepared me for my return to Morocco a few short months later. She was instrumental in connecting me to the nascent art scene in Casablanca–which I ended up writing about for the NY Times this past May.

Here is the story I wrote about her for Canvas Magazine.
