Join artist Cassils, in person, for a walk-through of the exhibition Queer Communion: Ron Athey. The Artist POV Tour is an opportunity to receive perspectives from artists about the work on view.
RSVP required. Space is limited.
Cassils (they/them) is a transgender visual artist who makes their own body the material and protagonist of their performances. Working in live performance, sculpture, photography, sound design and film, Cassils contemplates the history(ies) of LGBTQI+ violence, representation, struggle and survival. For Cassils, performance is a form of social sculpture: Drawing from the idea that bodies are formed in relation to forces of power and social expectations, their work investigates historical contexts to examine the present moment. Cassils is the recipient of the USA Artist Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, the inaugural ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art, Creative Capital Award, and Visual Artist Fellowship from the Canada Council of the Arts. They are co-founder of In Plain Sight.
