Opening Reception for Mona Hatoum: Terra Infirma


Celebrate the opening of Mona Hatoum: Terra Infirma, the artist’s first major museum exhibition in the United States in over twenty years. Often referencing domestic and everyday objects, Hatoum creates installations and sculptures that capitalize on unexpected combinations to evoke a range of conflicting emotions such as fear and fascination, or attraction and revulsion. Over her four-decade career, she has continually investigated ideas of home and displacement, engaging with conditions of global instability and political upheaval.
