It's Happening in Space. Presentation of Burcher's rarely seen archival material and original work across a range of media, early predilections towards themes of feminist science fiction and mysticism.
Visionary conceptual, performance and installation artist Claudia Bucher has clandestinely influenced the Los Angeles art world as a consummate artist’s artist for over two decades.
Even less is known of her early career on the East Coast. This stardusted period includes collaborations with NYC artist and AIDS activist Barton Benes, immersion with 70’s experimental filmmakers at SUNY Binghamton, crazy van rides in southern swamps with William S. Burroughs, the establishment of one of the first performance art venues and punk rock clubs in North Florida in the 80s, and the study of space art at MIT’s CAVS. Through the presentation of rarely seen archival material and original work across a range of media, early predilections towards themes of feminist science fiction and mysticism, biomorphic posthumanism and sardonic pranksterism are revealed.
