UC Santa Cruz Institute of the Arts and Sciences (IAS) and Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery are pleased to present Carlos Motta: We The Enemy, the first West Coast solo exhibition of artworks by the internationally acclaimed artist. Carlos Motta (b.1978, Columbia; lives in New York) works across media in installation, film, photography, and sculpture to trace connections between current political crises and repressive notions of gender and sexuality.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Motta and Rachel Nelson, IAS curator and interim director, have organized a 2-day symposium “Bodies at the Borders.” Taking place January 24, 2020 at UC Santa Cruz and January 25, 2020 at SFMOMA, where Motta also has work also on display,* “Bodies at the Borders” brings together scholars, activists, artists, filmmakers, and poets to engage the politics of borders as they intersect with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, and race.
