A comprehensive exploration into 35 years of Hatoum's work in Britain, from her early performance and video works to her sculpture and large-scale installation

Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, Mona Hatoum settled in England in 1975. Her work creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities, often making the familiar uncanny. Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, she engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.

Immerse yourself in the work of one of the most important artists working today.

Exhibition organized by the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, in collaboration with Tate Modern and Finnish National Gallery / the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki
