On Wednesday, August 21, Hyperallergic will be hosting our next ArtTalk featuring artists AA Bronson and Carlos Motta at The Bedford in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The topic for that evening’s discussion and conversation is “The Body, Spirit, Sex, Community, Magic, and the Other,” which is the focus of AA Bronson’s upcoming project The Temptation of AA Bronson, at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The Temptation of AA Bronson, opening September 5, 2013, features AA Bronson’s solo work and his collaborations with younger generations, together with the work of friends, including Marina Abramović, TM Davy, Matthias Herrmann, and K8 Hardy. On October 20, Stuart Comer joins the project to present the films of Charles Henri Ford. And on November 6, Carlos Motta and AA will present a “ritual of queer rituals”, including Ron Athey, Sands Murray-Wassink, Elisabeth Povinelli, and Lyn Tonstad, amongst others.
This evening’s conversation will be a lively discussion exploring AA Bronson’s established body of work and new directions in his creative life.
AA Bronson is an artist and healer living and working in Berlin and New York City. From his beginnings as one of the founders of the artists’ group General Idea (1969–1994) to his current hybridized practice, his work has been dominated by collaboration and consensus.
Carlos Motta is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York, whose work has been exhibited at The New Museum, MoMA PS1, and the Guggenheim Museum. He’s currently collaborating with AA Bronson on the event “ritual of queer rituals” at Witte de With in Rotterdam on November 2, 2013.
Please join us for this intimate event that will take place at The Bedford (110 Bedford Avenue, entrance on North 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211), 7–9pm.
Tickets are available through Eventbrite, and include a complimentary cocktail. No tickets will be sold at the door.
