Closely examining the life and work of cross-dressing performance artist, painter, sculptor and gay activist Jose Perez Ocana (1947-1983), this catalogue focuses on the artist's final decade in Barcelona, where he was a well-known figure in the underground art scene and a fixture on Las Ramblas (the tree-lined pedestrian mall that runs through the city), along which he staged spontaneous "happenings" or procesiones that combined a camp sensibility with the traditions of his native Andalusia.
