Huma Bhabha: UCLA Department of Art Lecture

  • This is a past program

Huma Bhabha’s work addresses themes of memory, war, displacement, and colonialism. Using found materials, the artist creates haunting human figures that hover between abstraction and figuration, monumentality and entropy. While her formal vocabulary is distinctly her own, Bhabha embraces a post-modern hybridity that spans centuries, geographies,art historical traditions, and cultural associations. Her work has been exhibited and acquired by museums internationally.
