Mona Hatoum (Palestinian and British, b. 1952) is the sixth artist to participate in the Artist’s Choice series, for which contemporary artists are invited to organize an exhibition drawn from works in MoMA’s permanent collection. Hatoum is a conceptual artist whose own work focuses on such issues as the instability of birthplace, shifts in gender roles, and power dynamics. For this exhibition, she has selected works by such artists as Cindy Sherman, Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, and Francis Alÿs.

Organized by Mona Hatoum with Fereshteh Daftari, Assistant Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.

Artist’s Choice is made possible through The Agnes Gund Artist’s Choice Fund endowed by Iara Lee and George Gund III, Lulie and Gordon Gund, Ann and Graham Gund, and Sarah and Geoffrey Gund.
