Lecture & Workshop


Cassils is a transgender artist who makes their own body the material and protagonist of their performances. Cassil’s art contemplates the history(s) of LGTBQI+ violence, representation, struggle, and survival. For Cassils, performance is a form of social sculpture: Drawing from the idea that bodies are formed in relation to forces of power and social expectations, Cassils’s work investigates historical contacts to examine the present moment. Cassils has had recent solo exhibitions at HOME Manchester, Station Museum of Contemporary Art, Perth Institute for Contemporary Arts, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NYC; Institute for contemporary Art, AU; Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts Bemis Center, Omaha; MU Eindhoven Netherlands.
