Final Transmission:
Performance Art and AIDS in Los Angeles

Edited by Brian Getnick
Designed by Tanya Rubbak

SIGNED BY GETNICK & RUBBAK IN-STORE AT ARTBOOK @ HAUSER & WIRTH LA! 

In the summer of 2016, NS, the performance art journal of Los Angeles, brought together 35 performance artists, scholars, and activists to discuss the impact of the ongoing AIDS crisis on queer communities and performance culture in Los Angeles. Throughout that four day event, participants uncovered histories, myths and a deep well of emotion on both sides of the generational divide created by the epidemic. Final Transmission, Performance Art and AIDS in Los Angeles compiles those exchanges in a book that highlights the legacy of catastrophe on performance making in the context of pandemics past and present.

Contributors to the book include: Pablo Alvarez, Benita Roth, Ty Geltmaker, Jamillah James, Nao Bustamante, Jennifer Doyle, Marcel Alcalá, Mica Sigourney, Liss LaFleur, Daniel Hellmann, Alexandra Juhasz, Dont Rhine, Chris Freeman, Jack Halberstam, Simone Aughterlony, Travis Read-Davidson, Brandon Drew Holmes, Raquel Gutiérrez, Andy Sacher, Robb Hernández, rafa esparza, Sebastian Hernandez, Kenyon Farrow, Nathan Schocher, Keith Hennessy, Philip Littell, Ryka Aoki, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario, Obidio Martinez, Marc Streit, Mark C.
