MAMA (MUSEUM OF MODERN ART IN ALGIERS)
Petit Futé's opinion on MAMA (MUSEUM OF MODERN ART IN ALGIERS)
Inaugurated in December 2007, MAMA reinvested the majestic framework of the old Galleries of France (later became Algerian Galleries). During the Algérois of Galeries Lafayette, they were designed in 1914 by the architect Henri Petit, the great figure of the New Moorish school. If the purists regret the old woodwork of the railings and lifts or the monumental staircase covered today by a white painting, the whole thing is certainly striking, and one can only rejoice at the fact that Algiers has a place dedicated to contemporary art. The museum hosts temporary thematic exhibitions, retrospective artists, photographers, and installations of Algerian or foreign artists. Exhibitions change every 6 months. Visit the museum's small bookstore, which contains catalogues of all the old exhibitions and books on contemporary art or photography in relation to Algeria.
