Princess (Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill) is a queer interdisciplinary performing arts duo that uses music as the narrative basis for their conceptual, visually dynamic video operas. Their blending of genre and medium exemplifies their ethos of fluidity; once society embraces the full gradient of Identity, the richer, healthier and more beautiful the world will be. Their work often examines social and political issues, striving to understand what it means to be human in the frenetic and fragmented modern age, often through a self-reflective humorous lens. Princess has been part of art and music communities since 1999, from early DIY queer music scenes in Chicago to internationally renowned museums.
Princess has performed at 21c Museums, 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.
