Exhibition Walkthrough with Artist Huma Bhabha & Curator Shanay Jhaveri | The Metropolitan Museum of Art | Saturday, 22. September 2018
A special walkthrough with Pakistani born New York-based artist Huma Bhabha & The Met curator Shanay Jhaveri, discussing We come in Peace-- a breathtaking site-specific installation at The Met's Roof Garden addressing themes of colonialism, war, displacement, and memories of place. Using found materials and the detritus of everyday life, Bhabha creates haunting human figures that hover between abstraction and figuration, monumentality and entropy.
