Simon Asencio: Performance ‘Left / Write!’

1 September 2024, 14:00

On Sunday 1 September, Simon Asencio leads a performance titled ‘Left / Write!’ building on the 1981 San Francisco symposium of the same name. The performance is carried out in collaboration with participants of the summer course Text as an artistic medium, and forms the final moment of the program for the summer course and the exhibition with Vaginal Davis.

This event is part of the program of activations for the exhibition Vaginal Davis: HOFPFISTEREI. More information about the exhibition here and about the program here.

This exhibition has been developed in collaboration with Moderna Museet in Stockholm, as part of the exhibition Vaginal Davis: Magnificent Product. The museum presents a major retrospective of Vaginal Davis’s work while, in parallel, Index is the locus for research on her text production. Vaginal Davis’s solo exhibition Magnificent Product is initiated by Moderna Museet and extends across several locations in Stockholm: Moderna Museet, Nationalmuseum, Accelerator, Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Tensta konsthall and MDT (Moderna Dansteatern). Each institution highlights a different aspect of Vaginal Davis’s expansive practice.
