As previously discussed, Antony, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, and Cocorosie's Bianca and Sierra Casady have joined forces to form 'Future Feminism', "a call to arms to reorganize ourselves as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values."
UPDATE: We previously listed the "13 TENETS OF FUTURE FEMINISM" in this spot, but at the repeated request of the artists who tell us the list was not ready to be revealed yet, we have removed it.
A Future Feminism exhibition and event series will be taking place at The Hole (312 Bowery) from Sept 11 - 27, and the lineup for that has now been announced, which includes Marina Abramović, Laurie Anderson, Lydia Lunch, No Bra, and more. Check out the full schedule below.
The opening night reception is on September 11 from 6 - 9 PM and Antony, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, and Cocorosie will all be there. They'll also all be performing at the Future Feminism benefit which happens at Webster Hall on Sunday (9/7). Tickets for that are still available.
Full Future Feminism schedule is listed, along with a few more photos like the ones above, below...
Marina Abramović has earned international renown and acclaim for the boldness and startling originality of her work. But when the self-proclaimed "grandmother of performance art" decided to put her life story on stage, Abramović opted to hand the reigns to another visionary avant-gardist, director Robert Wilson. The remarkable result, The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, features Abramović in dual roles--as herself and her mother--and Willem Dafoe as the narrator, with original music composed and performed by Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons. [Luminato]The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, Robert Wilson's new quasi-opera, which he "conceived and directed," and which stars Marina herself, along with major actor Willem Dafoe and Antony and the Johnsons brainparent Antony Hegarty (who has performed with Marina), will make its North American premiere in Toronto this June, and then makes its US premiere in NYC at the Park Avenue Armory from December 12 to 21. Single tickets go on sale to the general public on June 17, and will be available on June 10 for members of the Park Avenue Armory, and June 13 for season ticket holders.

When William Basinski opened his nightclub Arcadia in 1992, Williamsburg had more than a decade of history as an outerborough artists' colony. Arcadia and a handful of other entities such as The Lizard's Tail, Lalalandia, Test-Site gallery, Nerve Circle Studios, Mustard and Galapagos transformed the artists' colony into a full blown urban subculture. No neighborhood in Brooklyn compares to Williamsburg for the shrillness of her declaration of artistic autonomy in the closing years of the last century. This neighborhood is the heart of the Brooklyn Renaissance. And at the heart of Williamsburg, in the pivotal years, was Arcadia. Join us on November 2nd, as we pay tribute to William Basinski and create the distinctive environment and spirited performances of Arcadia at 110 Livingston Street, our future home.Those with at least $250 to spend can relive Arcadia at 110 Livingston Street tonight (11/2). William Basinski, Marina Abramovic, and Antony are among those performing.
