Bodies of Waters Rising

November 6, 2021, 2pm

Carlos Motta leads Bodies of Waters Rising, a one-hour visit to the Brooklyn waterfront, where he will share a fictional story about a 19th-century sailor whose ghost looms over the waters telling speculative stories about early queer life and future climate destruction in New York City.

This is an in-person event. Free and open to the public.

Carlos Motta is a Colombian-born artist and educator based in New York. His research and teaching centers on body politics, gender, and queer history and often takes the shape of film installations and performances.

In 2022, he has solo exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio; and Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá, Colombia. His monograph, History’s Backrooms was published by SKIRA in 2020.
