    EPISODE 3 with Gabriel Torres

    Today we’ll be speaking with the multidisciplinary artist, Gabriel Torres.We spoke with Gabriel about his newest video series Distant Bodies, which is a series he created with The Tank and the LGBTQI Center in NYC, and it is giving artists, filmmakers and poets all over the world an opportunity to artistically and creatively respond to our current pandemic crisis. This work being created answers the question of what we can do together even though we’re isolated. The Distant Bodies video series will launch on June 1st; and they are still accepting submissions until May 1st. Gabriel is offering folks’ an opportunity to see art as a tool, and is using it to build solidarity with communities across borders.
