What's on: Exhibitions

Tate Modern: Exhibition Mona Hatoum Mona Hatoum

May 4 - August 21, 2016

This is the first major survey of Mona 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.

Tate Modern: Exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe Georgia O’Keeffe

July 6 – October 30, 2016

Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her paintings of magnified flowers, animal skulls, and New Mexico desert landscapes. This exhibition brings together some of her most important works, including Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 1932, the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction.
