Rosa Barba



Rosa Barba (b.1972, Agrigento, Italy) is an artist and filmmaker who balances conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work. She merges films, sculptures, installations, live-performances, text pieces, and publications that are grounded in the material and conceptual qualities of cinema, and analyses the ways film articulates space, placing the work and the viewer in a new relationship. Her work is part of numerous international collections, and her recent and forthcoming exhibitions include Centre Pompidou, Paris (2023); Tate Modern, London (2023); Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2021-2022); Cukrarna, Ljubljana (2021, 2022); Beaufort Triennial, Belgium (2021), and Yokohama Triennial (2020).
