Description - Hector Zamora: Lattice Detour - The Roof Garden Commission by Iris Candela

Features new analysis of Hector Zamora's oeuvre alongside a discussion of his topical, site-specific work created for the 2020 Roof Garden Commission at The Met

Mexican artist Hector Zamora (b. 1974) engages with public spaces and the manmade environment, using his work to draw attention to architecture's connections to community and social structure. This compact volume presents images and analyses of Zamora's site-specific artwork for the 2020 Roof Garden commission at The Met. Fabricated from hollow terracotta bricks, Zamora's intervention contrasts the architectural site of the Museum and its quintessential view of Manhattan with building traditions south of the United States' Mexican border. The eighth volume in a series on the Roof Garden commissions, this book also includes an interpretive essay, an interview with Zamora, documentation of his process, and photographs of his other important interventions and performances, all of which shed further light on his artistic development and inspirations.
