press release

In summer 2016, Tabakalera will present the first solo exhibition in Spain by Yto Barrada, which includes films, photographs, prints and sculptures from her new body of work, as well as selected earlier pieces. Among others, a selection of videos explore the practices of a smuggler, a magician, and members of the fossil trade in Morocco. A photo series documents a collection of North African toys collected by a French ethnographer. In subtle and compelling ways, the work engages questions of history, geography, geology, the invention of tradition, and the meaning of the modern.
