Dorian Wood is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work seeks to glorify both the sanctity and irreverence of intimacy. Through the use of his corpulent body and booming voice, Wood revels in challenging the artist-audience separation, using subject matter informed by his own position in society as a queer man of color and an autodidact without a formal college education or a strong alliance to any particular community. His work has been showcased in institutions such as LACE, LACMA, The Stone (NYC), Kulturhuset (Stockholm), and Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin). As a musician, he has released over a dozen recordings. His most recent albums, Rattle Rattle and Down, The Dirty Roof, showcase a series of doomsday-themed songs that incorporate over 60 musicians.
All photography and recording will be strictly prohibited during this performance.
