Yto Barrada

Born 1971 in Paris, France. Lives and works in New York, USA.
Yto Barrada is an artist recognized for her multidisciplinary investigations of cultural phenomena and historical narratives. Engaging with the performativity of archival practices and public interventions, her installations reinterpret social relationships, uncover subaltern histories, and reveal the prevalence of fiction in institutionalized narratives. Her work has been exhibited at Tate Modern, MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum, the Walker Art Center, Whitechapel Gallery and the 2007 and 2011 Venice Biennales. She was the 2011 Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year, the 2013 Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography, and the winner of the 2015 Abraaj Group Art Prize and the 2016 Canon Tiger Awards for Short Films. She is also the founding director of the Cinémathèque de Tanger.
