This exhibition will be the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this amazing artist ever held in North America. ARMENIA!  This is the first major exhibition to explore the remarkable artistic and cultural achievements of the Armenian people in a global context over fourteen centuries*from the fourth century, when the Armenians converted to Christianity in their homeland at the base of Mount Ararat, to the seventeenth century, when Armenian control of global trade routes first brought books printed in Armenian into the region.  HUMA BHABHA - WE COME IN PEACE: Huma Bhabha (born 1962, Karachi, Pakistan) has been selected to create a site-specific installation for The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, the sixth in a series of commissions for the outdoor space. Bhabha's work addresses themes of colonialism, war, displacement, and memories of place.
