dejecta/protecta: A Performance by Vaginal Davis is a night of four performances, inspired by Andy Warhol’s screen tests and the midnight performances of Jack Smith. This original work by Davis, an originator of the homocore punk movement and a gender-queer art and music icon, is an expanded cinema piece. It's a one-night only affair, with production and costumes designed by Jonathan Berger, and appearances by special invited guests. @MOCA Grand Avenue (Downtown) 7pm-10:45pm
