Go! Push Pops’ work as a queer, radical, transnational collective models the future of feminism and art. It signals the dawning of a golden age in which art is the germinating seed of global citizenship, cosmic creativity and artists as conscious leaders, radical shape-shifters and change-makers. In our collaboration-based model, we work with a rotating hive of artists, allowing our freewheeling creative work and consciousness-raising to spread out tribally like a rhizome.  Eschewing the Art world’s crumbling commercial marketplace and fetishistic relationship to difference and Otherness, our work is traced down through the lineages of folk art (to use today’s vernacular - shamanism, witchcraft, hip hop, yoga). Our pop-culture inflected fusion of these powerful, ancient and holistic medicines reestablishes Art as the primary binding agent of community. Improvisation-based, our organic approach to performance flows seamlessly in and out of the sacred rituals of daily life. We are embodied feminists, bringers of light and love, anchored to our power center, manifesting the new paradigm with our voices, drawing earth energy up through our feet and shooting up to the Goddess-head at our crown. We flow with the elements, often purposefully performing while menstruating and under the new and full moon. We are shining skulls led by transcendental intuition. We are fearless and brave, a glittering model of sacred sisterhood. We are sex-positive, and reclaiming our tits and ass as the hieroglyphics of Goddess Worship. We see the dark ages of white patriarchal colonial imperialism as temporally inconsequential to the past-future millennia of peaceful, gender-egalitarian and earth-based communal living. Go! Push Pops are mystical rainbow warriors interfacing with the archetypal realm and when we perform we channel the omnipotence of great Gods and Goddesses.
