Carlos Motta is a multidisciplinary artist whose work draws on political history in an attempt to create contradictory narratives that recognize the inclusion of repressed histories, community and identities. His artistic practice includes installations, video, photography, and sculpture, and he also produces documentaries. Motta concentrates his corpus in the histories and politics of sexual and gender minorities, producing narratives that revisit critically. In the artist's own words, "And if we imagine an inclusive future for all, a future arrived at by taking the paths that have always been presented to us as impossibles? Not a future impossiblebut a future desirable?”Nothing in Carlos Motta is impossible and everything in Carlos Motta is desirable.
