In 2011, Los Angeles County Museum of Art commissioned Harry Gamboa Jr. to revive X’s Party as a video projection for Asco: Elite of the Obscure exhibition to be presented at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Williams College Museum of Art, and Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo.

UCSIA sponsored Harry Gamboa Jr. to present, “Archive as Performance, Performance as Archive“, a public artist talk regarding his current work with Virtual Vérité performance troupe, history with Asco, Chicano Art, and Performance Art at Universiteit Antwerpen.

He also conducted several workshops with students and faculty of Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen, and worked with contemporary Flemish artists, Nico Dockx and Ria Pacquée, in order to produce several “actions” in Antwerpen and Brugge.
