Carlos Motta: Histories for the Future
July 15, 2016–January 15, 2017
Attempting to provide counter narratives that shed light on the dynamics of contemporary forms of social oppression, Carlos Motta (b. 1978, Bogota, Colombia; lives in New York) is a multidisciplinary artist that explores the discourses of sexuality, gender, identity, and minority culture in his works to challenge dominant histories. These works present the nuances of homosexuality and gender in ethnic groups prior to the arrival of the Europeans, and how these local practices and roles changed after the establishment of Western doctrines. Motta’s works reconsider the conquest of the New World offering a new cartography that takes into account alternative histories.

Carlos Motta: Histories for the Future is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. Support is provided by Knight Foundation.

It takes as its subject the Comoro Islands, an archipelago in the Mozambique Channel off the southeastern coast of Africa, comprised of islands that are both independent and under French rule.

SUPERFLEX: Kwassa Kwassa is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Associate Curator Diana Nawi. This exhibition is presented by Bank of America and Swatch with support provided by Knight Foundation.
