We Can’t Sleep with Carmen Boullosa and Magali Lara

Dia Chelsea, December 2, 2023

We Can’t Sleep is an opportunity to collectively reflect on ideas of home and homelands from a space of discomfort and awareness. Building off Carmen Boullosa’s poem “La patria insomne” (2011, translated as “Mamaland Can’t Sleep” by Katherine Hammond)—a multilayered, intimate reckoning with grief, memory, violence, and yearning—this immersive, bilingual English and Spanish event features a new animation by artist Magali Lara. Together Boullosa and Lara aim to invite and incite the audience to respond in their own languages, individually or communally, with materials to be provided for those who wish to express themselves visually.
