The USC Roski School of Art and Design is pleased to announce its fall 2014 Graduate Lecture Series, featuring weekly, in-depth presentations by internationally recognized artists, curators, and writers in an intimate setting that fosters critical conversation. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Huma Bhabha (American, b. Karachi, Pakistan, 1962) is known for her engagement with the human figure and for her use of found materials, working primarily in sculpture. Often tending towards the grotesque, Bhabha’s sculptural works and photo-based drawings feature bodies that appear dissected and dismembered, but one can likewise view them as monuments to human life reclaimed from the detritus of a post-apocalyptic landscape. Incorporating materials like Styrofoam, animal bones and clay, Bhabha creates figures that feel unstable and ephemeral. Insistently contemporary, they nevertheless recall classical figurative traditions across a range of cultures and historical periods, typifying a strand of neo-primitivism that has arisen in the past decade.
