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

The work of Mexican artist Héctor Zamora engages with urban or built environments, both disrupting and rearticulating the viewer’s interaction with the site. Lattice Detour, his most recent intervention, commissioned by The Met for its Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, is fabricated from terracotta bricks produced in Mexico and transported to New York. This compact volume, the first book in English on Zamora, presents images and analysis of the new artwork, setting its creation in the context of his past work. An interview with Zamora sheds further light on his formation as an artist, his process, and his inspirations.

Iria Candela is Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Paola Santoscoy is director at the Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City.
