It's ladies night at the Brooklyn Museum tonight. A group consisting of zine queen Osa Atoe, Le Tigre's Johanna Fateman, the performance artist known as Narcissister, No Wave legend Lydia Lunch, and artist-curator Astria Suparak will be holding a panel discussion about the twin forces of punk and feminism, presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The speakers will discuss their own life experiences — a topic on which Lydia Lunch alone could hold court for days — and their works. But we're perhaps most intrigued to see Narcissister, New York's anonymous, topless feminist superheroine.
"I Will Resist with Every Inch and Every Breath: Punk and the Art of Feminism" takes place tonight at 7PM at the Brooklyn Museum's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium.
