Special One-Night Screening: The Couple in the Cage: Guatinaui Odyssey

Wednesday, January 27, 6:00 p.m. EST

In 1992 Coco Fusco and Guillermo Gómez-Peña started their Guatinaui World Tour, a series of live performances presenting the artists as “undiscovered Amerindians” from the mythical island Guatinau in the Gulf of Mexico. Fusco’s and Paula Heredia’s The Couple in the Cage: Guatinaui Odyssey documents these events alongside unknowing visitors’ reactions, shedding a critical light on colonialist practices over the past 500 years and on the historic mistreatment of Indigenous bodies. 

This special one-night-only screening of the 31-minute video features an introduction by curator Nadiah Rivera Fellah and a live Q&A session with the audience afterward.
