As part of Leeds International Festival, we are delighted to announce that we will be welcoming Punk, pornographer, pioneer, provocateur: the incredible Cosey Fanni Tutti, the performer whose art and music inspired a generation and rocked the establishment to its core. Cosey began her career in 1969 and is a hugely respected artist and musician, known for her performance art, her work in the sex industry, as co-founder of Throbbing Gristle, and her pioneering electronic music as half of Chris & Cosey and Carter Tutti. Her memoir, ‘Art Sex Music’ (published in 2017) was Sunday Times, Telegraph, Rough Trade, Pitchfork and Uncut Music Book of the Year, and longlisted for the Penderyn Music Book Prize. We are truly honoured to be welcoming such a hugely influential artist.
