News & Events


Lydia Lunch, a writer, musician, actress, and poet will appear at Smith on Thursday 4/9 at 7:30 PM in Weinstein Auditorium. The event will include a performance, conversation with moderator(s), and Q&A session. Lydia Lunch will talk about her career as a pioneering member of 1980s NYC punk, No-Wave, and feminist performance art. Short bio (as submitted by the artist): "Lydia Lunch is passionate, confrontational and bold. Whether attacking the patriarchy and their pornographic war mongering, turning the sexual into the political or whispering a love song to the broken hearted, her fierce energy and rapid fire delivery lend testament to her warrior nature. She has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up. Brooklyn’s own Akashic Books have published her recent anthology Will Work For Drugs, as well as her outrageous memoir of sexual insanity Paradoxia, A Predator's Diary, which has been translated into seven languages. Ms. Lunch has also contributed to Akashic’s just released Heroin Chronicles edited by Jerry Stahl. In 2012 Rizzoli released her sassy, sexy cookbook The Need To Feed, proving that even food in the right hands can be a dangerous thing."
