We are pleased to announce the largest presentation of Carlos Motta work in the United States to date: Carlos Motta: Your Monsters, Our Idols, which will open on September 16th at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
The exhibition celebrates the artist’s commitment to radical difference and the debut of his Wex-commissioned project, The Columbus Assembly, Motta’s first multichannel sound installation, which was supported by a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award. The works that will be presented focus on the struggles of queer people through counternarrative strategies that employ self-representation and self-determination. The show presents collaborations with other artists such as Julio Salgado, Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau, Tiamat Legion Medusa, and SPIT! (Sodomites, Perverts, Inverts Together!).
Carlos Motta: Your Monsters, Our Idols will be on view until December 30, 2022 at the Wexner Center for the Arts. Stay tuned for more information on the exhibition!
