About

Yto Barrada (FR, 1971) is a Moroccan-French artist based between New York and Tangier. Yto Barrada’s work engages with self-education, architecture, palaeontology, botany, and modernist histories, in order to explore forms of knowledge production. Through material and archival research and experimentation, Barrada’s work examines what is at stake in specific moments of obstruction.
Her work has been exhibited at Tate Modern, London (XXXX), MoMA, New York (2005, 2011, 2013), The Renaissance Society, Chicago (2012), Witte de With, Rotterdam (2004), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016), Whitechapel Gallery, London (2013), and the 2007 and 2011 Venice Biennale. She was the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year for 2011, after which her exhibit RIFFS toured widely. Barrada is also the founding director of Cinémathèque de Tanger. She is a recipient of the 2013-2014 Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography (Peabody Museum at Harvard University) and was awarded the 2015 Abraaj Prize.
