Yto Barrada

Cinematheque Tangier 
@ Walker Art Center

As a "crossroads of civilizations," Tangier has long captured the imagination of the West, and been romanticized and immortalized in film and literature. Having grown up around those myths, artist Yto Barrada has been interested in the material history and visual culture of her hometown, particularly its rich cinematic past. She has developed an artistic practice that combines documentary strategies with a metaphoric approach to imagery, resulting in a poetic body of work recognized for its emblematic power.
