Gagosian’s Manuela Cuccuru will lead a tour of the exhibition Huma Bhabha: The Company at Gagosian, Rome, on the occasion of Rome Art Week. This show features new expressive drawings on photographs as well as figurative sculptures carved from cork and Styrofoam, assembled from refuse and clay, or cast in bronze. Probing the tensions between time, memory, and displacement, Bhabha combines references to science fiction, archeological ruins, Roman antiquities, and postwar abstraction as she transforms the human figure into grimacing totems that are both unsettling and darkly humorous. To attend the free event, register at romeartweek.com.
