Huma Bhabha: Before The End

April 30, 2024 - March 9, 2025
Brooklyn Bridge Park, 334 Furman Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Located in Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 3 Greenway Terrace. With the ominous title Before The End, Huma Bhabha (b. Karachi, Pakistan, 1962) sets the stage to evoke mythologies as old as humankind. Conceived for Brooklyn Bridge Park, Bhabha’s four monumental painted and patinated bronzes were cast from carved cork and skull fragments.

Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Smack Mellon is pleased to announce the 2024 Emerging Artist Summer Group Exhibition, guest curated by Alex Santana. Spiral Time explores radical ecologies of resistance that challenge the temporal pressures imposed by capitalism.
