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.

FINALLY THE PP FINISHED EDITING HIPSTER SPEED DATING VIDEO!!!

CHECK IT OUT!!




Hipster Speed Dating, a multimedia interactive public sculpture, took place July 16th, 2011 at Local Project in Long Island City. Revamping an old mating classic with a darkly twist, the Push Pops Hipster Speed Dating occurred as a spontaneous d.i.y. reality television show hosted in the Local Project gallery space and broadcast on the street via projector live. A subversive feast for the senses and provocative social experiment, the Push Pops took a no holds barred approach to match making as this loosely organized performative spectacle deteriorated into vacillating waves of seduction, intrigue, debauchery and farce. Check out the video below to view selected scenes of the show.

THANKS TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!!!

Special THANKS!! to local project
