The Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is presenting Mohamed Bourouissa's first solo exhibition in a French museum.
After catching the critics' eye at the emerging talent exhibitions Younger than Jesus at the New Museum in New York (2009) and Dynasty at the Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2010), this Franco-Algerian artist, born in Blida in 1978, is now one of the major figures of his generation.
The "Urban Riders" exhibition revolves around Bourouissa's film Horse Day, shot in the disadvantaged North Philadelphia neighbourhood of Strawberry Mansion. The film was a decisive stage in his artistic development. During an eight-month residency he became interested in the Fletcher Street community stables, which he discovered thanks to the images of American photographer Martha Camarillo.
