Vaginal ‘Crème’ Davis

Further information
: VAGINAL DAVIS is a self-described 'visual arts treasure', and has performed throughout the US and Europe. Artforum hailed her as 'The future of art', whose medium is the indefinite nature of her own whimsy. Whether tweaking the notion of an 'art rock concept band' - Black Fag, Cholita the female Menudo, Pedro Muriel & Esther - or making experimental film, she has been at the forefront of a new breed of art mavericks. The first lady of punk rock drag, Ms Davis hosts a weekly 1920s-style burlesque event in LA and is the co-curator with Ron Athey of multimedia events in the form of durational party/action/festivals.

This series of talks by practising artists continues in 2005 with performance legend Ron Athey and the first lady of punk drag Vaginal 'Creme’ Davis, both visiting from Los Angeles.
