How can interspecies relationships be ethically cultivated to transform ecosystems? Alongside the exhibition “Daniel Lie: Unnamed Entities,” this discussion between artist Daniel Lie and exhibition curator Bernardo Mosqueira, ISLAA Curatorial Fellow at the New Museum, will explore behind-the-scenes details of the exhibition as well as larger considerations about the impact of care and non-verbal communication.

About the Speakers

Daniel Lie (b. 1988, São Paulo, Brazil) is a trans-nonbinary, Indonesian-Brazilian artist, currently based in Berlin. For the past decade, Lie has been working in partnership with other-than-human and human beings, using organic material to create largescale installations that are constantly in transmutation. In their works, Lie uses the presence and the idea of rottenness to undo the binary representation of life and death. They have had recent solo exhibitions at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany (2021); Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh, Scotland (2019); Performeum/ Vienna Festwochen, Vienna, Austria (2017); and Change – Change, Budapest, Hungary (2016). Their work has been included in group exhibitions at numerous venues, including Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2021): Atonal Festival, Berlin, Germany (2021); Berlinische Galerie, Berlin, Germany (2021); Solar dos Abacaxis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2020); Cemeti Institute for Art and Society, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2020); Osage Foundation, Hong Kong (2018); 14th Yogyakarta Biennale, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2017); and Frestas – Art Triennial, Sorocaba, Brazil (2017).

Bernardo Mosqueira is a curator, writer, and researcher based in New York. He is the ISLAA Curatorial Fellow at the New Museum, New York, and artistic director of Solar dos Abacaxis, Rio de Janeiro.
