Through the exploration of this artist’s multidimensionality, the exhibition will highlight the diversity in her work. Providing an extensive overview, the display at Mathaf will include Adnan’s paintings, drawings, leporellos, tapestries, writings and films from the 1960s onwards. [Source: Mathaf]

Mona Hatoum: Turbulence
mona hatoumThe exhibition Mona Hatoum: Turbulence brings to the forefront the diversity of Mona Hatoum’s work over the last 30 years. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition’s premise builds on the artist’s topical work Turbulence (2012), a 4 x 4 metre square composed of thousands of glass marbles laid directly onto the floor. Placed exactly at the centre of the exhibition, this installation lies at the heart of a linear but non-chronological trajectory whereby a number of unexpected juxtapositions echo the complexity through which the artist has managed to challenge, and at times disturb, our experience of the ordinary.

Films
DFI Brazil Cinema Showcase: Elena
ElenaSynopsis: Elena, a young Brazilian woman, travels to New York with the same dream her mother had: to become a movie actress. She leaves behind a childhood spent in hiding during the years of military dictatorship. She also leaves Petra, her seven-year-old sister. Two decades later, Petra follows in Elena’s footsteps – she also becomes an actress and heads for New York in search of her sister. She has few clues about Elena’s whereabouts: home movies, newspaper clippings, a diary and some letters. At any moment, Petra expects to find Elena strolling through the streets in a silk blouse. Gradually, the features of the sisters are confused; we can no longer tell one from the other. When Petra finally finds Elena in an unexpected place, she must learn to let her go. (DFI)
