still fastidiously preparing my next studio visit post, as you patiently wait, contemplate going to this PopRally event, looks like it could be fun.
AN EVENING WITH THE RAINCOATS
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2010
PopRally invites you to a special performance by the legendary post-punk group The Raincoats, presented in conjunction with a pair of MoMA exhibitions featuring influential women artists. Kathleen Hanna will kick the event off with a DJ session.
Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography presents a selection of outstanding photographs by women artists, charting the medium’s 170-year history. Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen recognizes the prominence of women who have critically addressed kitchen culture and myths. Both exhibitions are associated with MoMA’s publication Modern Women: Women Artists at The Museum of Modern Art.
The Raincoats, formed by Ana da Silva and Gina Birch in the late 1970s, created a sound, inspired by punk and rock music, that became a significant source of inspiration for future of generations of feminist musicians. Kathleen Hanna was a founding member of Bikini Kill, co-creator of the zine Riot Grrrl, and lead singer of the dance-punk band Le Tigre.
From 8:30 to 10:00 p.m., enjoy an exclusive exhibition viewing and open bar during Kathleen Hanna‘s DJ set; The Raincoats’ performance follows at 10:00 p.m.
