GUTTED: LACE’S ANNUAL WINTER BENEFIT 2010

LACE is pleased to present GUTTED: LACE’S ANNUAL WINTER BENEFIT. In 2010, LACE teamed up with Los Angeles-based curator Dino Dinco, who brings his own passions and experience to this annual fundraising event. Inspired by Los Angeles’ history of performance art and LACE’s role as an open platform for artistic expression, Dinco has reached out to a range of artists, both established and emerging, to present an unrestrained evening of contemporary performance.

GUTTED showcases a daring ensemble of live performance, texts and objects speaking of, from and to the body. With a roster of creative talent spanning thirty years of live performance, GUTTED illustrates an array of ways artists have addressed the human form, spanning issues of domesticity and labor, AIDS, race, social activism, queerness, straightness, bodybuilding, body destruction, fantasy & grotesquerie.

HEATHER CASSILS is an artist, stunt person and body builder who uses her exaggerated physique to undermine and interrogate systems of power and control. Often employing many of the same strategies used by FLUXUS and guerrilla theater, her multidisciplinary method crosses a spectrum of performance, film, drawing, video, photography and event planning. She is a founding member of the Los Angeles based performance group the Toxic Titties. Her work is a response to the industrial production of images and the Los Angeles mass culture of consumption. She has exhibited at the White Chapel and Thomas Danes gallery in London, Manifesta, Schnitt Ausstellungsraum, Edith Ruß Site for Media Art in Germany, LGBT film festival in Paris, France, the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwigin Vienna, Austria, MUCA Roma and International Festival, Ex-Teresa Arte Actual in Mexico City, and Art in General in NYC.
