WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?
It’s so nice of President Obama to catch on to what we’ve all been saying for years: Same-sex couples should be able to get married. Perhaps if he had experienced the work of multidisciplinary artist Carlos Motta, the president could have come to that conclusion long ago. In Motta’s latest exhibition, “We Who Feel Differently,” the Colombian-born artist addresses the idea of sexual and gender “difference” within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer community via a series of sculptures, prints, interactive forums, and a video installation based on 50 interviews with an international and intergenerational group of LGBTIQ academics, activists, artists, politicians, researchers, and radicals. Motta’s mission isn’t just about building tolerance or assimilation, but rather looking ahead to a “concept of equality that provides for greater personal freedom.”
