The Renaissance Society presents “Riffs” by Yto Barrada, Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year 2011.
For her Midwest museum debut, Tangier-based artist Yto Barrada will exhibit “Riffs”, an installation of photographs and films that inquire into the daily traces of historical changes taking place in North Africa, the artist’s home. Barrada, who is Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year 2011, has developed an artistic practice, which combines the strategies of documentary with a metaphoric approach to imagery, resulting in a body of work lauded for its emblematic power.
