The second last installment of the monthly, limited-run art party series — which brings together on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and fan culture surrounding the League of Legendary Ladies —will be a very special Pride Toronto variety show extravaganza celebrating Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien’s secret White Heat Toronto history. (Think Dusty/Carol.)
For Sheroes #11: Dusty Springfield, organizer/salonnière Rea McNamara has commissioned an impressive lineup of local and international artists and performers. Inspired by the Queen of the Postmod’s trouble-making perfectionist notoriety, these performances, digital animations and interactive installations will reinterpret and remix for one night only our current muse.
