Mission Statement

The Push Pops are a radical, transnational queer feminist art collective. Geared toward engendering ‘Embodied Feminism,’ Go! Push Pops employs the female body – that which is bound to a cross-cultural language of desire, signification and power – in tactical, ideological strategy. Go! Push Pops utilize gesture, exclamation and popular idiom to embody a new age discursive physicality interfacing with the ancient archetypal realm. Neo-Dada, Fluxist and Feminist, their performance work posits the body as a danger to the operation of reason and patriarchal economy of lack. A wild leap, an elusive slogan, a paroxysm of the flesh – The Push Pops reinscribe the body through participatory ritual, spontaneous performance and interactive multi-media installation.

SThThe Push Pops are happy to announce that the video "LAND ON THE MOON" has been selected to be screened in SanctionedArrayREENING AT 30 ft x 16.5 ftVideos screened at BIG SCREEN PROJECT on October 25th 2010, 5:00 - 9:00 P

SanctionedArray is an online database of video art conceived in response to the restrictions placed on artist submissions to The Guggenheim Museum and YouTube's video biennial, Play. Artist submissions to Play are limited by OFAC sanctions—citizens or residents of Belarus, Cote d'Ivoire, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Myanmar/Burma, and Zimbabwe are not eligible to submit their work. We maintain that the application of OFAC sanctions to virtual transmissions of video art perpetuates the conditions that led to the imposition of these sanctions; those who wish to protest the continuity of such restrictions — artists of any origin, including those from the sanctioned countries — are invited to submit their work to SanctionedArray.

We hope to showcase the most notable and varied video works from creators anywhere. Submission of virtual entries to SanctionedArray follow online video formats proposed by YouTube and the Guggenheim, with the exception of item 1.d. under Eligibility (https://sites.google.com/site/ytplayterms/all). One hundred videos will be selected for the online database. A large number of invited art professionals shall serve as jurors in SanctionedArray by rating the online entries in a process and open source code created and generously provided to us by apexart. The selection criteria are not predetermined in the call for submissions, and will be calibrated by jurors in the process of selection.

SanctionedArray selected video entries shall also be launched on October 25th, 2010 at The Big Screen Project. This event shall coincide with the Play biennial at the Guggenheim, providing representation of video works considered not eligible by origin as determined by YouTube and the Guggenheim, and challenging a status quo as proposed by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Guggenheim Museum.REENING AT 30 ft x 16.5 ft:ideos screened at BIG SCREEN PROJECT on October 25th 2010, 5:00 - 9:00 PM,

The Push Pops Land on the Moon, The Push Pop Collective's third interdisciplinary performance, took place in two parts on September 11th, 2010. Through a ritual reclaiming of the universal territory known as the moon, the Push Pops sang in English, Spanish and Russian, erasing history and erecting a new state of consciousness as they become the very first human beings to land and discover this unique and mysterious lunar terrain. Fugitives of gravity, The Push Pops land on the moon wielding a hybrid red white and blue flag, a diamond-shaped amalgam of the flags of their respective countries of origin - Russia, Chile and the United States. The Push Pops Land on the Moon in a gesture of co-ownership, co-authorship and radical multiplicity. Landing in tandem to footage of Armstrong's fictitious voyage, the Push Pop's skirt media dissolution, projecting a powerful neo-narrative onto a cross cultural blind spot. Characteristically utopic and feminist, this project erects a matrix of important questions concerning the content of border zones, behaviors, bodies and territories in space. Who sings the nation state? Who sings the universe? Who sings the moon? Following the planting of their flag the Push Pops zoom back to earth for a ceremonial parade on the L train from 8th Ave. to Brooklyn.
