Emily Roysdon: A Gay Bar Called Everywhere (With Costumes and No Practice)
Curated by Matthew Lyons
New York-based artist Emily Roysdon presents a new performance event titled A Gay Bar Called Everywhere (With Costumes and No Practice). Inspired by the legacy of The Kitchen, Roysdon gestures to the intersections of performance history, queer culture, and feminist intellectuals in New York City, crafting an undisciplined attempt at herstory. The performance features unorthodox pairings of dance, music and performance by Vanessa Anspaugh and Aretha Aoki, Nao Bustamante, Jibz Cameron, Dean Daderko, Celeste Dupuy-Spencer, Nicole Eisenman, Barbara Hammer, K8 Hardy, Yve Laris Cohen, Thomas J. Lax and Elaine Carberry, Tara Mateik, Neal Medlyn, MPA, Jeanine Oleson, Will Rawls, Charles Ryan, JD Samson, A.L. Steiner, Sacha Yanow and other surprise guests, as well as a set designed by Roysdon.
This program is made possible with support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Jerome Foundation, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
