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.

Cold Womb featuring recent work by the Push Pop Collective will open at Local Project this Saturday July 2 at 7pm. In this unique exhibition, the Push Pops will exhibit for the very first time footage from their two most recent performative sculptures ’Block Watching’ and ’Imaginary Picnic’ as a 5-channel installation alongside physical relics and video documentation of selected past works. Free limited edition posters of all past projects will be available at the opening on a first come first serve basis. And don’t miss the secret interactive community event hosted by the Push Pops on July 16th (more details to come soon)!

Situated adjacent to the PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Cold Womb’s opening party corresponds with PS1’s very first Warm-Up of the season. Shake it off and jerk it cuz we got drinks, fierce ladies, and a DJ all day long!
