Tate Modern presents the first major survey of Hatoum’s work in the UK, covering 35 years from her early radical performances and video pieces, to sculptures and large-scale installations.
The exhibition brings together over 100 works including across the artist’s oeuvre of performance, video, photography, installation, sculpture and works on paper, which gives an overview of the diversity and scope of Hatoum's work.
Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, Hatoum engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.
The exhibition was shown at the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, in Autumn 2015 and will travel to the Finnish National Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki in late 2016.
“One of the most important and powerful artists of her generation finally gets the big British show she deserves.” The Sunday Times
