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.

Magic Banner, a Push Pop Collaboration with artist Ivy Castellanos, took place at the IV Soldier Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn on March 16, 2012. Led by Castellanos as The Conductor, a ‘violent sculpture’ on stilts with a cloak of dried paint in the likeness of the American flag; the Push Pops, now a pregnant gay hood couple, sang a bilingual National Anthem against the backdrop of Magic Johnson’s 1991 press conference in which he announced that he was H.I.V. positive and would serve as a spokesperson for the disease. Magic Banner is a public proclamation calling for a new national horizon supported by conscious and humble leadership toward a greater good.

Special Thanks to Ventiko!!

Animamus Art Salon was created by Ventiko in 2011 with the mission to create a safe, supportive and inspiring environment for artists of all mediums to debut and discuss their current work while encouraging audience participation and simultaneously enabling a performance of ideas, which can not be repeated. 

Animamus Salon seeks, in this digital age, to create a physical meeting space that will serve to foster the exchange of ideas, facilitate discourse, and create a sense of community. 

The Push Pops screened documentation of our Yoga Hip Hop Fusion 'Bulimic Flow' and talked about our collective mission.
