Huma Bhabha’s monumental sculptures at the ICA reflect a diversity of influences, including horror films, sci-fi, and modernism. This rich and complex visual vocabulary enables her to create timely, stirring works. She states, “I make what I want to make while feeling a responsibility to bear witness to what is happening in the world.” Hear more about what drives Bhabha’s artistic practice in this conversation between the artist and Eva Respini, Barbara Lee Chief Curator.
