Until 28th September 2015 at the Pompidou Center

The retrospective of Mona Hatoum (born in 1952) at the Georges Pompidou Centre is a significant event. Twenty years after organising an exhibition dedicated to the British artist of Palestinian origin, the Pompidou Centre is now devoting her a retrospective bringing together over a hundred pieces. This is the opportunity for us to enjoy her multidisciplinary practice, developed between 1977 and 2015.

The Pompidou Centre draws the trajectory of a demanding artist, who does not hesitate to use all the means at her disposal, in order to create high-impact works. In a non-chronological approach, performances of the 1980’s are displayed alongside sculptures, photographs, drawings and installations from the late 1980s to the present.

 

With her penetrating look, Mona Hatoum dissects the world around us and creates artworks, which are both beautiful and violent, reflecting reality’s inherent contradictions.

A show which will not leave you indifferent!
