Mona Hatoum @ Tate Modern / until 21st August 2016


Sun–Thu 10am–6pm
Fri–Sat 10am–10pm

@ Tate Modern, Bankside London SE1 9TG

Tickets: £14.50 book online

Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities. Hot Spot is a steel cage-like neon globe which buzzes with an intense, mesmerising yet seemingly dangerous energy. Elsewhere electricity crackles through household objects, making the familiar uncanny.

This is 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. Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, she settled in England in 1975.

Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, Hatoum 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.
One of the most important and powerful artists of her generation finally gets the big British show she deserves.

Doors: 19:00 – 23:00

@ Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE

Free entry

An intimate evening of dance and sound to explore what it means to display and to be on display.

What do you choose to look at, what details do you pay attention to and what does this say about you? Sound and performance will be woven into the fabric of the building’s spaces as Candoco Dance Company explores how much we choose to display about ourselves, what we reveal subconsciously and what remains hidden.

As exhibits for the evening, Candoco’s disabled and non-disabled dancers will perform throughout the building, asking us to consider the subtleties and complexities of what it means to be on display. How much will they dare to reveal? What will you choose to see?

Go and experience a different kind of Friday Late Spectacular as Candoco brings a fresh perspective to the spaces and objects. Prepare to move and to be moved.

This is a special late-night event with a bar running all night.
