Queer Communion: Ron Athey

Oct. 23, 2020 | Amelia Jones, Robert A. Day Professor of Art and Design and professor of art and design, art history and American studies and ethnicity

Super excited about the catalogue I co-edited with USC Roski colleague, Professor Andy Campbell, titled “Queer Communion: Ron Athey.” This catalogue, which includes extensive original writings and drawings by Ron Athey (many never before published), accompanies a major exhibition on the work of Ron Athey, one of Los Angeles’s most internationally famous performance artists, opening in New York City in January 2021 (at Participant Inc.) and at ICA LA in June 2021. Anyone interested in performance art, queer cultural production, and queer archives should grab a copy of “Queer Communion.”
