Exhibitor: The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program presents:
Huma Bhabha Tuesday, March 14, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.
New York-based artist Huma Bhabha creates work that addresses universal themes of colonialism, war, displacement, and memories of place. Using found materials of everyday life, Bhabha creates haunting figures that hover between figuration and abstraction, the monumental and the abject. Bhabha is known for her engagement with the human form and for her use of found objects. Her materials include Styrofoam, scavenged wood, found metal parts, chicken wire, cork, and air-dried clay, which she forms into complex assemblages. By using diverse media, she creates figures that feel unstable and ephemeral.
