Camilo Godoy in residence

by Alain Chivilò


The annual Artist Residency at The New Museum in New York for the season 2023-24 goes to the Colombian Camilo Godoy.

As announced, Godoy’s artist in residence will use movement to experiment with the representation of mourning and survival. His choreographic exploration will draw on dance histories as well as his own archive of gestures sourced from ancient erotic art, colonial visual culture, pornography, medicine, and dance rehearsals. Inviting the public to join this evolving process, Godoy will engage audiences through interactive workshops, performances, and discussions.

Alethea Rockwell, Keith Haring Director of Education and Public Engagement, pointed out how “Camilo Godoy’s work explores universal experiences of pain and pleasure, grief and joy and life and death that touch all people. We hope that his New Museum Residency offers audiences a chance to process these loaded topics together through performance and dialogue”.

Lisa Phillips Director of the New Museum said: “the Artist Residency program extends the New Museum’s commitment to creating opportunities for artists to connect with the public on issues critical to contemporary culture”.

Camilo Godoy (Bogotà, 1989) is a New York-based artist whose practice spans photography, performance, pedagogy, and archival production.
