Scenes and styles change, but is something more fundamentally shifting in the role urban subculture plays? Is it being outmoded? This one-day event will examine these questions from the particular vantage point of how subculture altered how we think about gender, sexual, and racial dissidence. Speakers include the following: journalist Kandia Crazy Horse; musician Drew Daniel; Julie Atlas Muz, Miss Exotic World 2006; filmmaker and artist James Spooner; and Karen Tongson, assistant professor of English and gender studies at the University of Southern California; and performance artists Lady Jaye and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV.
The event is co-sponsored by NYU Performance Studies and the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music.
