Hicham Berrada

Born in 1986 in Casablanca (Morocco), Hicham Berrada lives and works in Paris and Roubaix (France). Nurtured by a dual artistic and scientific background, Hicham Berrada’s work combines intuition and knowledge, science and poetry. In his works, he explores scientific protocols that mimic different natural processes and/or climatic conditions as closely as possible. “I try to control the phenomena I mobilize as a painter controls his pigments and brushes. My brushes and pigments would be temperature, magnetism, light.” Kamel Mennour and Hicham Berrada have been working together since 2015.

His work has been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions at: the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; the Maubuisson Abbey; in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles; at the Mac Val, Vitry-sur-Seine; the macLyon; the CCCOD, Tours; the MRAC–Musée Régional d’art contemporain Languedoc Roussillon, Sérignan; the Fresnoy–Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing; the ZKM, Karlsruhe; the Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt-am-Main; the MoMA PS1, New York; the ICAS–Institute of Contemporary Art, Singapore; the Moderna Museet, Stockholm and the Banco de la República, Bogota.
He took part in several biennials: the Lyon Biennale; the BIM–Biennale of Moving Image, Geneva and the Yinchuan Biennale (China).
The artist has also presented several performances at: the Villa Medici and the Maxxi in Rome; the Abattoirs, Toulouse; the Mac Val; as well as during the Nuits Blanches in Paris, Brussels and Melbourne. He was in residence at the Villa Medici in Roma, and at the Pinault Collection in Lens.
In 2019, Hicham Berrada participated in the group shows at the Punta della Dogana, Museum of the Pinault Collection in Venice, Italy ; the Zadkine Museum, Paris, France; and Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany. He has had solo exhibitions at: the Louvre-Lens; the Hayward Gallery, London; and the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw (USA).
Hicham Berrada was nominated for the 2020 Marcel Duchamp prize.
