Hassan Hajjaj’s third solo show in Dubai at The Third Line, La Salle de Gym des Femmes Arabes. The title, which translates into Gym for Arab Women, is a continuation of Hassan’s depiction of strong and spirited Arab women in his vision of Moroccan pop-culture.
For the exhibition, Hassan delved into the traditional gym culture across the Arab world, transforming the gallery space into a makeshift recreational centre for women. Whereas Hassan has had easy access to fitness clubs for men in Morocco, he has never been inside a women-only sports facility or gym and he uses this as a trajectory to conceptualise such a space, keeping true to the aesthetics of his previous installations – all embodying the vibrant colour, texture and spirit of the Moroccan street vibe.
These caps are limited edition merchandise created for the show that took place in March 2016.
