Yto Barrada will be participating in the upcoming Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj. From the Foundation,
"Tamawuj, a noun in Arabic which is defined as a rising and falling in waves, but also a flowing, swelling, surging, fluctuation or a wavy undulating appearance outline or form, is reflective of SB13’s aims to cultivate collaborations, infrastructures and strategies within Sharjah and the project localities. The Biennial poses questions around, and proposes answers to the conditions for the possibility of an art world. In a region currently being invested with larger institutions and lesser infrastructures, SB13 will cross from the ideal to the material. Vital interventions will stretch the idea of the biennial in order to traverse rooted contexts, harnessing the agility and fragility of present informal networks."
Yto Barrada's work will be on view from March 10 through June 12, 2017 as part of the Biennial. For more information, visit the Sharjah Art Foundation's website.
