A performance by Vaginal Davis
in conjunction with The Artists Museum

Saturday, January 22, 2011, 8pm
Ahmanson Auditorium
MOCA Grand Ave.

Inspired by Andy Warhol's screen tests, and the midnight performances of Jack Smith, this expanded cinema piece is a new work created by Vaginal Davis, an originator of the homo-core punk movement and a gender-queer art-music icon. Berlin based, Ms Davis made her name in LA's club performance scene, and has earned herself a similar notoriety as a cultural antagonist and erotic provocateur, renowned for her performance, experimental film and video practice. This original work will be staged at MOCA for one night only and will feature production and costumes design by Jonathan Berger, and appearances by special invited guests.
