Cross-disciplinary artist Bianca Casady of music duo CocoRosie is set to launch a new print magazine entitled Girls Against God (GAG).
A boldly feminist exploration and multi-generational endeavor, GAG deploys the arts to illuminate the oppressive, obsolete nature of traditional, male-defined religions and other patriarchal institutions "We must resist and reinvent," Casady declares.
Created in partnership with artist Anne Sherwood Pundyk, GAG's debut issue is a lushly colorful tabloid-sized print publication, showcasing provocative, original artwork alongside comprehensive interviews and essays with an international cadre of artists.
GAG's editors honor feminist heritage, seen in a photo essay of the Seneca Women?s Peace Encampment ? while seeking to broadcast current perspectives, such as Pussy Riot and Femen.
GAG Issue 1 contributors include: Antony, Gabby Bess, Melanie Bonajo, Vaginal Davis, Yasmine Hadan, Emely Neu, Kembra Pfahler, Marguerite Stern, Alexyss K. Tylor; and contributions from Johanna Constantine, Mary Hanlon, Julie Higonnet, Molly O?Brien, Chloe Olewitz, Alice O' Malley, Kara L. Rooney, and Jean Marc Ruellan.
