Asco’s artworks move between fashion, rock, gangster and Hollywood imagery. Although they were only briefly staged, photographs of their actions by Harry Gamboa Jr were then posted to friends, press contacts, and art and cinema professionals. Working outside the gallery and museum system, Asco experimented with different ways of occupying public space and disseminating their work. In Asshole Mural, 1975, Asco’s four core members pose next to the opening of a large concrete drainpipe on a rocky LA hillside, dressed as film stars or dandyish businessman. Asco again combine glamour and disgust, fiction and reality, in a single memorable image.
