Art-Rite magazine editor deAk curated this prescient series of performances by women. In Tim Lawrence’s recent description, the event “included burlesque, fashion, gymnastics, readings, video, film slides, live performance, and DJ-ing from the likes of Patti Astor, the Bush Tetras, Debbie Harry, Tina L’Hotsky, Glenn O’Brien, Anya Phillips, Amos Poe, Anita Sarko, and Chi Chi Valenti.” Perhaps the highlight was a performance by rap pioneers the Funky 4 + 1 (featuring female MC Sha-Rock).
