Punk pioneer and provocative performer Cosey Fanni Tutti speaks at the Black Box on January 14 as part of the Out To Lunch Festival, having been a thorn in an anxious establishment’s side during the 70s and 80s.
Her 1976 performance art exhibition, Prostitution, hit the tabloids and caused an almighty stir, with one Tory MP denouncing Cosey and her COUM Transmissions collaborators as ‘wreckers of civilisation’.
Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art, some of which resides as part of the Tate permanent collection.
Tickets cost only £5 from CQAF. Doors open at 8pm.
