Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Lady Jaye (photo by Laure A. Leber)

You may know Genesis Breyer P-Orridge from their collages of tabloid articles, altars with stuffed bunnies, or project to surgically alter themselves to resemble their late partner, Lady Jaye. But before all this, P-Orridge started as a musician, performing in experimental, electronic bands in 1970s London. For the culminating event of MoMA PS1’s series Between 0 and 1: Remixing Gender, Technology and Music, P-Orridge will trace their beginnings in the British music scene and how they helped them to shatter preconceived notions of gender.

Today, P-Orridge’s performance and visual art are inextricable, and always a deeply personal manifestation of their identity. While the MoMA event is a billed as a “lecture,” it will certainly be more lively than your average one, with noise artist Dreamcrusher and electronic musician Elysia Crampton opening the event. It is also an apt conclusion to a series of workshops, performances, and talks that has explored how people with gender nonconforming identities have found expression through technology and music.

When: Sunday, February 26, live performances at 3pm and 4pm, lecture-performance at 5pm ($15 for nonmembers, $13 for members)
Where: MoMA PS1 (22–25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens)
