With a particular focus on live editing and iteration produced in the moment of speaking/performance, this day event highlights practices that emerge between text and performance, the page and the body. With readings, performance and screenings from Anna Barham, Daniela Cascella, Ami Clarke, Tomoko Hojo, Natasha Lall, Aura Satz, Linda Stupart.

This programme is a live counterpart of the eponymous exhibition ORGASMIC STREAMING   ORGANIC GARDENING   ELECTROCULTURE at Chelsea Space until Friday 25 May 2018.

ORGASMIC STREAMING  ORGANIC GARDENING ELECTROCULTURE seeks an alternative framework to look at the influence of conceptual procedures as well as experimental writing within contemporary feminist performance practices across visual art, sound and text. The exhibition and event programme highlights these significant trans-historical sensibilities, whilst acknowledging their disjuncts. Each artist brings a particular method, procedure or interrogation to the act of writing or performing text, blurring descriptions such as text, score, work, performance, version and iteration.

This event and the exhibition at Chelsea Space is supported by Arts Council England, LUX, Chelsea College of Arts, and Chelsea Arts Club Trust.
