Benefit for ISSUE Project Room - Honoring Kim Gordon
In November 2013, ISSUE Project Room concludes its ten-year anniversary festival with a capstone, two-night benefit concert series honoring legendary artist Kim Gordon. In addition to serving as founding member, vocalist, instrumentalist, and songwriter for the highly-acclaimed alternative rock band Sonic Youth, Gordon has gained widespread renown as a visual artist, record producer, video director, fashion designer, and actress.

The series opens on Wednesday November 13th with a VIP Reception in ISSUE's 22 Boerum Place theater. Kim Gordon collaborates with drummer Tim Barnes in an intimate performance over food and cocktails from Rucola. The concert begins at 9:00pm with a performance by guitar legend J Mascis solo. Gordon and her recent collaborator Bill Nace follow as the electric guitar duo Body/Head, with Ikue Mori joining on drums a return to her seminal no-wave roots.

On Thursday November 14th, Gordon performs for the first time with I.U.D. a ferocious female industrial unit of Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) and Sadie Laska (Growing) and renews her longstanding collaboration with Jutta Koether, acclaimed painter, writer, and member of the artist band XXX Macarena. Having collaborated in the past in performances, installations and videos, the duo of Jutta Koether and Kim Gordon share an unabashed pleasure in disregard for technique. The result is physical, fierce and free.
