An Evening with The Raincoats with a DJ set by Kathleen Hanna
The Museum of Modern Art, New York
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.
Co-organized with PopRally Committee.
