An Invitation to See
Yto Barrada in the Ikon Gallery



After Wangechi Mutu, Yto Barrada is the second artist to be selected as Deutsche Bank's “Artist of the Year.” In 2011, the Deutsche Guggenheim introduced Barrada’s work in her first major solo show in Germany, titled Riffs. Since the late 1990s, her home city Tangiers has formed the point of departure for Barrada’s photo and video works, sculptures, and interventions. Her work, both poetic and politically engaged, invites the viewer to see, indeed demands that the viewer take a closer look.

The 1971-born Moroccan artist has developed a highly specific aesthetic of the random. Recently, the Chicago Tribune called her installations, films, and photo works “quietly mesmerizing.” The occasion for the review was Barrada’s exhibition in the Renaissance Society, Chicago, where Riffs was on show following its premiere in Berlin and a guest appearance at WIELS in Brussels. Now, in further cooperation between Deutsche Bank and the renowned exhibition house, the show of the “Artist of the Year” 2011 has moved on to the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, England. In 2011, the Nedko Solakov exhibition All in Order, with Exceptions was shown here, which was also supported by the bank. Following its appearance in Birmingham, Yto Barrada: Riffs will also be on view in MACRO in Rome and at the Fotomuseum Winterthur.

5/16 – 7/8/2012
