In Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment, Los Angeles-based performance artist Ron Athey “completes” his memoir (“Gifts of the Spirit”) in ecstatic communion with 16 writers, six typists, musicians, a hypnotist, and vocalists who speak in tongues. Athey has been writing his memoir since 1980, when he moved away from the Pentecostal and Spiritualist practices in which he was raised, making the deconsecrated cathedral of St. Vibiana the perfect venue for this work.

Presented in collaboration with composer Sean Griffin, Gifts of the Spirit is co-produced by VOLUME, and has been made possible in part by a grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts. Guest-curated for VOLUME by Jennifer Doyle.
