Héctor Zamora (Mexican, born Mexico City, 1974) will create a site-specific installation for The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, the eighth in a series of commissions for the outdoor space, which boasts stunning views of Central Park and Manhattan.

Zamora is known for works that engage public spaces and the built environment. In his practice, Zamora reinvents and redefines conventional exhibition spaces, generating friction between the common roles of public and private, exterior and interior, organic and geometric, real and imaginary.

The Roof Garden Commission series was established in 2013 by the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art. The series of site-specific commissions on The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden has recently featured work by Adrián Villar Rojas (2017), Huma Bhabha (2018), and most recently, Alicja Kwade (2019).

Additional support is provided by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky.
