Description

By Shanay Jhaveri, Ed Halter, and Sheena Wagstaff

This catalogue accompanies The Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Modern & Contemporary Art exhibition.

Often described as post-apocalyptic, the work of sculptor Huma Bhabha (born 1962, Karachi, Pakistan) responds to violence and turmoil through depictions of anthropomorphic figures—or "characters," as Bhabha calls them—that frequently appear to be dismembered, melted, or dissected. This book, accompanying a site-specific installation at The Met, features an interview with the artist and two essays that provides insights into her diverse influences and elaborates on how art history, politics, economics and popular cinema have informed her work. This publication is the sixth edition in a series that documents The Met's annual rooftop commissions.

Shanay Jhaveri is Assistant Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Ed Halter is a founder and director of Light Industry, a venue for film and electronic art in Brooklyn, New York, and Critic in Residence of Film and Electronic Arts at Bard College.

Sheena Wagstaff is Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
