Artist Talk: Mona Hatoum: Everyday Circumstance
Thursday 15 November 2007, 18.00–19.30
Mona Hatoum, whose work including Incommunicado (1993) and Untitled (Wheelchair) (1998) is on exhibit in The Twentieth Century: How it Looked and How it Felt, will give an illustrated talk on her work since the 1990s, particularly focusing on work featured in our current Tate collection display and how they relate to neighbouring works in the display.
Hatoum, born 1952 in Beirut, Lebanon is an artist of Palestinian origin who moved to London in 1975. She was nominated for the Turner Prize for her exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and for her show at the White Cube. Hatoum began her artistic career with performance pieces, later moving to mechanical installations involving video, light, and sound. While mostly focusing on confrontational themes such as violence, oppression, and voyeurism, she has often made powerful references to the vulnerability and resistance of human bodies.
