YANG LI JOINED GENESIS P-ORRIDGE AND OPENING CEREMONY AT THE ACE HOTEL IN NEW YORK FOR A SILENT AUCTION RAISING FUNDS FOR GENESIS P-ORRIDGE.
Last year revolutionary musician, performance artist and founder of the leading-edge experimental music group Psychic TV, Genesis P-Orridge, was tragically diagnosed with leukemia leading her to cancel the 2018 European tour with her band. Moved by this news, London-based fashion designer and collaborator of Genesis, Yang Li, decided to devote this season of SAMIZDAT, his line of imaginary band merchandise, to reproduce the merch for the Psychic TV tour that never happened. This is available to purchase as part of the silent auction in tribute to Genesis, raising funds to help flight her battle against leukemia. Alongside this both Genesis and Yang are displaying unique collectables from their personal collections such as limited edition and signed records, books and prints.
All funds raised will be donated to support Genesis in her battle with Myelomonocytic Leukemia and towards assisting with the increasing medical expenses.
The exhibition, which is curated by Opening Ceremony and Yang Li, will be on view from the evening of 30th August to 13th September.
