A compact volume that illuminates the work of Huma Bhabha and chronicles her piece for the 2018 Met Roof Garden commission

Often described as "post apocalyptic," the work of Pakistani sculptor Huma Bhabha (b. 1962) responds to the violence and turmoil in the world around her through depictions of anthropomorphic figures that often appear to be dismembered, melted, or dissected. This compact volume, accompanying a site-specific installation at the Metropolitan Museum's Roof Garden, features an interview with the artist that provides new insight into her diverse influences. Essays discuss the impact of cinema and science fiction on Bhabha's sculpture, explore art historical connections, and illuminate the artist's process and oeuvre over the past 20 years. Like the installation, this book-the sixth in a series devoted to the Met's Roof Garden Commissions-connects Bhabha's contemporary practice to both art history and global current events.
