Orgasmic Streaming Organic Gardening Electroculture
Chelsea Space Gallery
Private view: Tuesday 24 April, 6:00-8:30pm
Exhibition continues: 25 April – 25 May 2018
ORGASMIC STREAMING ORGANIC GARDENING ELECTROCULTURE is a group exhibition project looking at practices that emerge between text and performance, the page and the body, combining a display and events programme of historical and contemporary works. Focusing on textual and performance practices, newly commissioned and existing works will intersect with the display of two key archival works: Carolee Schneemann’s Parts of a Body House [1968-1972], and Alison Knowles and Annea Lockwood’s score anthology Womens Work [1975-8]. The exhibition seeks an alternative framework to look at the influence of conceptual procedures as well as experimental writing within contemporary feminist performance practices; an area with which this significant locus of exciting new work has major resonances.
ORGASMIC STREAMING ORGANIC GARDENING ELECTROCULTURE will be accompanied by workshops, an event, a publication and an affiliated symposium to take place in May 2018.
Curated by Karen Di Franco and Irene Revell.
