Later in September, The Future Feminists collective will unveil the 13 TENETS OF FUTURE FEMINISM at The Hole art gallery on the Bowery, kicking off 13 nights of lectures, conferences and performances in the gallery space. CocoRosie, Antony, Kembra Pfahler and The Girls Of Karen Black and Johanna Constantine present a special benefit concert at Webster Hall in support of the Future Feminism exhibition, performance series and future activities.
The benefit on September 7th at Webster Hall will star famed eccentric folk duo CocoRosie (“Sounding “like two little Billie Holidays an octave higher if you were on acid in Tokyo in 1926” – Jim Jarmusch), with special guest appearances by Antony (“Cries from the heart, crashing like waves” – NY Times) and legendary artist Kembra Pfahler and The Girls of Karen Black. Johanna Constantine will spin aural disco doom on the turn tables.
CocoRosie – Comprised of Sierra and Bianca Casady, they recently premiered their collaboration of Bob Wilson’s Peter Pan in Paris and Berlin and completed a world tour in support their album Tales of a Grasswidow.
Antony – is a singer and visual artist. Antony and the Johnsons just returned from Madrid performing 4 nights at Teatro Real with Orquesta Titular del Teatro Real presenting the final incarnation of Swanlights originally commissioned by MoMA and performed at Radio City Music Hall in Jan of 2012. As a visual artist, he is represented by Sikema Jenkins Gallery in NYC where he is currently in a group show entitled Works on Paper (Sep. 2nd-Oct. 4th).
Kembra Pfahler – Kembra Pfahler is a Hole artist and has done many projects with the gallery since its inception. She founded The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black and is currently working on a performance technique with students called Performance Art 101. Her last show at The Hole was Giverny with E.V.Day, where she turned he gallery into a replica of Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, France.
Johanna Constantine – Johanna Constantine is a dance based performance artist who recently danced at The Tate Modern in London in an exhibition by Charles Atlas.
These 5 artists (Antony, Kembra, Johanna, Bianca & Sierra Casady) have developed a series of vivid tenets for FUTURE FEMINISM during 3 years of intensive retreats. Collectively, they represent a frontier feminist point of view. FUTURE FEMINISM is a call to arms to reorganize ourselves as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values. Tenet Number 1: THE SUBJUGATION OF WOMEN AND EARTH IS ONE IN THE SAME
Tickets for the FUTURE FEMINISM show will go on sale at noon on Wednesday, August 13th, HERE.
