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.

Go! Push Pops is proud to announce an exciting new performance work in collaboration with the AMAZING sculptor Matt Stone during the POWERPLAY Sculpture Park Opening in the Hamptons this Saturday. The piece, titled Xithinix Pangea adopts Stone’s sculpture as a type of  neo-tribal ‘totem’ within a constructed psychic terrain at once primal and galactic futurist. The performance will conclude with a music set by the thrash core ensemble Prayer Town.

On July 14th, 2012 POWERPLAY activates the 13-acre facility of the Hayground School in Bridgehampton, Long Island featuring over 25 emerging and established artists from the East End and New York City. The participatory-based programming highlights sculpture, installation, performance, sound and video.

POWERPLAY is a sculpture of experiences curated by Molly Morgan Weiss and The City Firm. POWERPLAY invites the viewer to question the value system of power and how it is interpreted within the American psyche. The exhibition confronts the dualities between natural and man made energy, as well as being a part of a global community versus an ethnocentric one. The themes explored are alternative energy, science, space exploration, food, holistic practices, technology, spirituality, sexuality, wealth, beauty,  ritual and human interaction.  A printed map of the 13-acre experience will be provided upon entrance.
