Public Program:
Todd Shalom and Juan Betancurth: Sketchy Walk
Date
May 31 2012
Description

For “Sketchy Walk” participants will meet at a historic and still-active cruising point on the Bowery. They will singly explore both anachronistic and current urban symbols and rituals that facilitate sexual encounters. Betancurth and Shalom will incorporate stories from Carlos Motta’s and Joshua Lubin-Levy’s book Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public into the walk, as the group has the opportunity to intimately realize its past repression and potential joy in the present.

Sketchy Walk was originally conceived in the context of Carlos Motta’s “Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public” (2011), a project commissioned by Forever & Today, Inc., New York.
