The Met Fifth Avenue, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York

Event Description

Huma Bhabha (born 1962, Karachi, Pakistan) has been selected to create a site-specific installation for The Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, the sixth in a series of commissions for the outdoor space. Bhabha’s work addresses themes of colonialism, war, displacement, and memories of place. Using found materials and the detritus of everyday life, she creates haunting human figures that hover between abstraction and figuration, monumentality and entropy.
