Performance of Chiara Fumai's 'S.C.U.M. Elite' at ISCP (NYC)


February 12, 2019, 6–8pm: I will be performing in the reenactment of The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) by pioneering feminist artist Chiara Fumai (1978–2017).

Fumai’s hybrid practice was deeply rooted in performance and her interests were far-reaching—encompassing radical feminism, chaos magick, terrorist propaganda and Italian Autonomist Marxism. In her work, she frequently deconstructed ideologies that have impeded women’s empowerment. Fumai performed as marginalized historical figures, transmitting occult messages that revived forgotten or discarded narratives.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces the opening of LESS LIGHT, an exhibition of work by Chiara Fumai , a 2017 ISCP alumna. The artist’s first solo exhibition on this continent, LESS LIGHT brings together two of Fumai’s pioneering works, The Book of Evil Spirits (2015) and Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini, Zalumma Agra, Annie Jones, Dope Head, Harry Houdini, Eusapia Palladino read Valerie Solanas (2012-13), as well as a reenactment of the performance The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) at the opening reception.
