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.

Feminists Crash the Whitney
A Public Conversation At The Whitney Biennial

Art collectives to lead inclusive consciousness raising discussions

Friday, May 16, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Whitney Museum of American Art, 945 Madison Ave., 2nd floor galleries.

The Clitney Perennial is a rogue group conversation to be staged in the galleries of the Whitney Biennial. Impromptu conversations will be lead by members of art collectives, along with individual artists, writers and curators on the second floor of the Whitney Museum. The conversations are intended to raise awareness about the lack of diversity in the show as a microcosm of the larger art world.

Suzanne Lacy, renowned artist and activist endorses the event, "Clitney Perennial is hysterical, combining serious activism with engaging humor; I wish these feminists the best of luck!" 

All museum attendees will be welcome to gather in small groups for feminist consciousness raising discussions. Conversations may conclude and re-form throughout the evening. Flowers available at the front door of the museum may be worn by all participants.

Discussion leaders include the following collectives and individuals:
Moon Church, Girls Against God, FlucT, Go! Push Pops, Slutist;
Anne Sherwood Pundyk, Katie Cercone, Asha Man, Melanie Bonajo, Nancy Azara, Mimi Balmori, Ivy Castellanos, Coco Dolle, Julia Fiorino, Rebecca Goyette, Elisa Garcia de la Huerta, Greem Jellyfish, Sigrid Lauren, Maura McHugh, Monica Mirabile, Julie Ann Nagle, Esther Neff, Samantha Osborne, Naomi Elena Ramirez, Kara L. Rooney, Kristen Korvette, Suzanne Stroebe, Sophia Wallace
