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.

The Brooklyn Paper

Brooklyn Paper

It’s Bushwick gone wild as area becomes a big art show on Sunday

BY AARON SHORT, The Brooklyn Paper

Ever wonder where all the artists in Brooklyn are moving to these days? That would be Bushwick — where another arts festival is set to command your attention on Sunday.

Beta Spaces, a free one-day arts festival sponsored by the all-volunteer group Arts in Bushwick, consists of more than 50 group exhibitions from neighborhood artists all encompassed between three subway stops on the Williamsburg-Bushwick border.

That freewheeling spirit has generated a lively mix of shows each with its own theme that include a pile of metal, rubber and plastic scraps that experimental musicians use to make music, a mystical alleyway on Forrest Street filled with performance artists and trees, and a female arts collective called the Push Pops leading an “aerobic utopia,”“The festival provides an opportunity for inexperienced curators to try something for the first time, said Arts in Bushwick’s Ali Aschman, who curated her own show, “The Box Which Contains the World” at Brooklyn Fire Proof. “We’ll accept anybody as long as they are within the parameters we set. We don’t turn anyone away.”

“For ‘Push Pops Gone Wild,’ we’re talking about a woman’s right to be fierce and nasty, her right to embrace wild free love,” said Push Pops founding member Katie Cercone.

Beta Spaces events will be throughout Williamsburg and Bushwick mostly around the Morgan Street L train, Nov. 14 noon–7 pm. For info,www.artsinbushwick.org
