Mona Hatoum’s roots are in a part of the world whose popular narrative is shaped by conflict and torn by violence. And while this informs her art, sculptures that are shaped through minimalist optics, it adds to the layers of meaning. Her more than two dozen works will be showcased in Houston for the first time in 20 years. “The themes that Hatoum addresses in relationship to ideas of placelessness and disbelonging are so relevant to our contemporary moment, and my hope is that the exhibition will provide a compelling and provocative way of initiating conversation for our visitors,” says Michelle White, the senior curator who helped bring the collection to the Bayou City. The public is invited to Thursday’s opening reception of Mona Hatoum: Terra Infirma.

7 p.m. Thursday. Hatoum will talk about her works at 7 p.m. Friday, October 13. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. October 13 through February 25. The Menil Collection, 1533 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-525-9400 or visit Free.
