Yto Barrada Agadir

Working across photography, film, sculpture and more, Moroccan artist Yto Barrada draws on narratives of the bandit, magician, underdog and smuggler for her first major London commission in The Curve.
Barrada’s work explores the different strategies of resistance we employ to deal with everything from the mundanities of everyday life to shifts in power and migration.

Born in 1971, Barrada lives and works in New York and Tangier, Morocco. She is the founder of Cinémathèque de Tanger (2006-ongoing), a cultural centre that occupies a renovated 1930s cinema in Tangier, which aims to bring together the local community and make accessible the cinematic history of Morocco as well as international film. Barrada was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2016 and was named Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year in 2011.
