The first New York solo exhibition by Yto Barrada featured photographs and videos that were part of the artist’s ongoing project, A Life Full of Holes: The Strait Project. Initiated in 1998, the work explored poignant issues of immigration, diaspora, economic vulnerability, and human rights. Barrada addressed these multiple themes through a series of poetic reportage-like images and fictional, narrative videos that capture the tension that animate the streets of Tangiers. This exhibition was curated by Debra Singer.
