Genesis Breyer P-Orridge’s ‘Try to Altar Everything’ Explores the Power of Devotion, Expression & Community (Through Monday, August 1)

    Date: 03/11/2016 - 08/01/2016

    Time: All Day

    Location: Rubin Museum of Art (150 W. 17 St., Manhattan)

    Price: Included with admission, free Friday evenings

    Try to Altar Everything, a selection of paintings, sculptures, and installations, will explore the ways that Hindu mythology and Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley have influenced the artist and h/er work.

    Both Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Nepal itself have long shirked the confines of “either/or.” Hybrid traditions are a fixture of life and culture in Nepal, as people may even identify as Hindu and Buddhist at the same time. Genesis, along with h/er late wife Lady Jaye, underwent physical alterations to create an elective and creative gender identity through their practice of Pandrogeny. The idea of identifying as both sides of a categorical option resonates with Nepalese approaches to identity and religion, as well as with Breyer P-Orridge’s own artistic practice, grounded in devotion and ritual.
