span of twenty years, Hatoum has traveled freely between performance, video,
photography, drawing, sculpture and installation. Cinema Project will be screening
several of Hatoum’s early video work including Changing Parts, a video
inter-cutting imagery from her parents’ house with the documentation of
a performance in which the artist was trapped inside a plastic walled container;
and Measures of Distance, a video that focuses on Hatoum’s separation
and isolation from her family in Beirut. This screening is part of a series
of public events surrounding her solo show at the Cooley Memorial Art Gallery
at Reed College.
