All Welcome – Please Arrive Early to Avoid Disappointment

Del LaGrace Volcano is a gender variant visual artist and cultural producer working with the body and identity notions for social, political and personal purposes. Volcano has produced five monographs, Love Bites (1991), The Drag King Book (1999, with Jack Halberstam), Sublime Mutations (2000), Sex Works (2005, with Beatriz Preciado) and Femmes of Power: Exploding Queer Femininities (2008, with Ulrika Dahl). Volcano is a regular contributor to academic publications, television programmes and films on visual art and queer and feminist theory, in addition to delivering performative lectures and workshops throughout Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia.

“As a gender variant visual artist I access ‘technologies of gender’ in order to amplify rather than erase the hermaphroditic traces of my body. I believe in crossing the line as many times as it takes to build a bridge we can all walk across.”
