Description

Between 2006 and 2009, AA Bronson collaborated with artist and academic Peter Hobbs on the project “Invocation of the Queer Spirits,” a series of five “performances” in five cities, in which a group of gay men gathered in a secret location at an unannounced time without documentation or an audience. The rituals that resulted are evoked, and invoked, in Plug In ICA’s new book, “Queer Spirits,” Bronson and Hobbs’ diaristic and imagistic exploration of the project co-published with Creative Time, New York (forthcoming, January 2011). Together they explored the various social forms of group therapy, ceremonial magic, the sweat lodge, witch’s covens, gay heart circles, and 19th century spiritualist séances to create the queer hybrid they entitled “Invocation of the Queer Spirits.” The fourth of these was commissioned by Plug In, and was held in the abandoned United Army Surplus store in its last days, before it was torn down to make room for the new building that houses Plug In today.
