“Mike Corleone, Vito’s son, enters a restaurant’s bathroom to get the gun hidden behind the toilet tank in Part I of The Godfather. Robert Redford is a presidential candidate who gets slapped around in the privacy of a public bathroom in All the President’s Men. We all know that things happen in bathrooms and not only in movies: secret deals, murders, drugs, sex, voyeurism, police arrests, secret service surveillance, etc. In short, the intimate space meant to accommodate our most personal needs is also a place for a multitude of other actions and events that have little or nothing to do with le toilette.” – Yovani Bauta, on Head in the Bathroom
The exhibition, reception, and lecture are free and open to the public.
Invisible Presence is presented with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
