huma bhabha

22 November 2016 - 28 January 2017

Huma Bhabha's second solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery will present an ambitious new body of work. The show will include three new carved cork sculptures, large-scale drawings with collage on photographs and a new clay and mixed media sculpture. The new work continues Bhabha's investigation into figuration, drawing inspiration from a wide spectrum of references that cross genres, time, art history, continents and popular culture. From Ancient Gandharan ruins to the instant contemporary ruins of stressed, urban infrastructure, time becomes another malleable material in Bhabha's toolbox.
