Camilo Godoy: renacemos a cada instante
Jan 1 – Feb 29, 2024
New Museum
New York, USA

As the New Museum’s 2023–24 Artist-in-Residence, Camilo Godoy will create a performance exploring movement, breathing, and mourning practices. The title of his residency is borrowed from an embroidered work made by the queer Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión in 1995, the year before he died of AIDS-related complications. Godoy adjusts Centurión’s title Renazco a cada instante (I am reborn at every moment) to renacemos a cada instante (we are reborn at every moment) to emphasize collective celebrations of life and death. Using the Museum’s theater as a space for rehearsal, dialogue, and collaboration, Godoy invites the public to join his evolving process through interactive workshops, an open rehearsal, and sessions with teenagers participating in the Museum’s NewMu Teens program.

This residency draws on Godoy’s Choreographic Studies, a personal archive and a constellation of collaged images that represent the human body performing gestures of eroticism, ecstasy, grief, and pain. Godoy sources the images from historical archives, art history, pornography, and medical materials. He intersperses them with photographs of himself and other dancers rehearsing and arranges the images in sequences of evocative poses that he treats as dance notations or instructions. Taken together, this archive presents an alternate history of emotional life, surfacing queer experiences of death, intimacy, and sexual expression.

Through his collaborative and improvisatory choreographic process, Godoy will draw inspiration from this archive to develop a new performance based on mourning practices and the resilience found in bodily joy and pleasure.

  • Chantal Joffe
    Artist
    Featured Profile

    Chantal Joffe brings a combination of insight and integrity, as well as psychological and emotional force, to the genre of figurative art. Hers is a deceptively casual brushstroke. Whether in images a few inches square or ten feet high, fluidity combined with a pragmatic approach to representation seduces and disarms. (more…)

  • César Cuspoca
    Artist
    In Memoriam / 1987–2022

    César Cuspoca (1987–2022) is a Colombian artist whose artistic practice principally nourishes questions of perception, the duality between appearance and disappearance, and materialism and immaterialism. It is, however, more concretely the idea of experience which takes a central role in his approach and which allows him to structure his creative process. (more…)

  • Dustin Shum: BLOCKS
    Publication
    Inertia Books
    International

    Public housing has recently been portrayed as a carrier of good neighbourhood that is vanishing in our society and the public has romanticised its image. However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)

  • Rodrigo Morales: 91 East
    Jun 1 – Aug 11, 2024
    GCAC / Grand Central Art Center
    Santa Ana, USA

    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
