Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser celebrates groundbreaking artists, and this year’s event will celebrate the achievements and legacy of musician, songwriter, actor, and performer – Courtney Love.

Creative directed and produced by Basilica Hudson’s Co-Founder and Director Melissa Auf der Maur (former bassist of Courtney Love’s GRAMMY-nominated, certified multi-platinum, award-winning band Hole) and artist Joe Mama-Nitzberg, who was Creative Director of Hole’s Celebrity Skin and is a longtime creative collaborator and comrade of both Love and Auf der Maur, the event will be hosted by a group of creative luminaries and friends, including Aaron Dessner, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Natasha Lyonne, Ryan McGinley, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Elvis Perkins, Chloë Sevigny, Michael Stipe, Justin Vivian Bond, Kenny Mellman, Brandon Stosuy, Yelena Yemchuk, Jack Walls, and other special guests.

Courtney Love will be in attendance as the honored guest. Love and special guests will be featured in conversations, readings, and performances. The evening’s program will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades. An exciting lineup of contributors will illuminate the impact of Love’s vital and inspiring art and energy and the inspiration her work continues to instil in the next generation of artists and musicians. The evening’s performances will demonstrate the incredible power and the lasting legacy of Love’s iconic explorations and subversions of femininity, and honor her unapologetic, fearless protest of the patriarchy.
