Hassan Hajjaj: My Rock Stars Experimental, Volume 1, 2012 | LACMA

This three-channel video installation by Hassan Hajjaj includes nine separately filmed performances by an international array of musicians. The sitters/performers wear clothes that Hajjaj has designed himself, and pose in spaces covered by patterns he has selected. Clad in traditional fabrics, as well as luxury brand clothes and shoes, the musicians bridge the gap between now and then, us and them, high and low culture, reflecting a fusion of Moroccan craftsmanship and contemporary art.
