If you missed Ron Athey's recent Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment, a performance/installation he co-created with composer Sean Griffin at the Broad in January, you can catch the performance artist and former L.A. Weekly contributor discussing the Getty's current exhibit, "Outcasts: Prejudice and Persecution in the Medieval World" (through April 8). Along with Kim Russo, an associate provost at Otis College of Art and Design, Sexuality, Sanctity and Censorship: A Conversation With Artist Ron Athey looks at the collection of illuminated manuscripts of the Crucifixion, Alexander the Great and other religious and historical figures and how they depict people who were considered outsiders in medieval society, including Jews, Muslims, women and the poor.
