Yto Barrada: The Dye Garden
This exhibition catalogue accompanies Yto Barrada: The Dye Garden, originally presented at the American Academy in Rome in 2018 and expanded for the Neuberger Museum of Art in 2019. The Dye Garden features recent work by Yto Barrada (2018 Resident), whose artistic practice weaves together family history and broader sociopolitical narratives, employing a variety of media, including photography, film, video, installation, sculpture, books, and hand-dyed textiles. The artist has long investigated gestures of resistance to structures of power and control. She has an abiding interest in mechanisms of displacement and dislocation, as well as questions of appropriation and authenticity.
This fully illustrated catalogue includes essays by Helaine Posner, the Neuberger’s chief curator, and Peter Benson Miller, curator and former Andrew Heiskell Arts Director at the American Academy in Rome. An artist’s contribution titled “Color Walks” is a special feature of this book.
