Last week, the joining of art and culture was celebrated in the magical Marrakech, one of Morocco's most beautiful cities. The 10th anniversary of the Marrakech Biennale was marked with the 5th installment of the event, which was founded in 2004. The month-long festival kicked off with the coming together of artists and art enthusiasts from around the world to bask in the gorgeous North African landscape and appreciate the exploratory endeavors of the contemporary creatives breaking boundaries today. From far-reaching pieces of artistic expression to traditional festive fun, catch our favorite snaps from the opening week of the 2014 Marrakech Biennale.
