Artist Carlos Motta and Larry Rinder, executive director of the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, discuss queer difference and public identities. Motta will speak about two recent projects: We Who Feel Differently, a solo exhibition and symposium that took place at the New Museum, New York; and Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public (with Joshua Lubin -Levy), a book that assembles drawings, by over sixty gay men, from memories of spaces in New York City where public sexual encounters occurred. Rinder’s talk will include a discussion of the 1995 groundbreaking exhibition, In a Different Light, which he co-curated with Nayland Blake, who will provide an introduction to the event.
