By popular demand, performance art-pop psychedelic duo Princess (Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill) has launched a second tour of performances in support of the audio visual release of their sci-fi feminist rock opera Out There. Their recent 40-city museum tour included sold out events at the Andy Warhol Museum, New Museum, DePaul Art Museum and many others.
“An extraordinary work of art… I couldn’t help but see Matthew Barney and the ideas there. I couldn’t help but hear David Byrne in some of the music. I couldn’t help but see, obviously, Warhol and shifting silk screen techniques. I couldn’t help but see Rauschenberg …an entirely fresh approach by using those influences to say something completely fresh and new about our time.”
-Lawrence J. Wheeler Former Director of the North Carolina Museum of Art
“With elements of rap, rock and pop, the performance will also have you dancing in your seat. Princess’ energy demands attention and will activate your senses. While the commentary in this show is serious, the experience is far from it.”
-Sara Lee Bund Nashville SCENE
Out There is a concept video album and live performance piece by the band Princess. It explores toxic masculinity and the role men ought to be playing during the current cultural reckoning of misogyny. The video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.
Princess is a performance art duo that explores queerness and the concept of masculinity. Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine and feminine, Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill are platonic soul mates, unified in their bond of not quite fitting in, who have been creating conceptual performances since 1999. Princess has performed at the Andy Warhol Museum, The Bass, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, MCA San Diego, MIT List Visual Arts Center, MOCA Cleveland, New Museum, Wexner Center for the Arts and many other institutions.
