The last installment of the monthly, limited-run art party series — which brought together for over a year on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and fan culture surrounding the League of Legendary Ladies — will put one last bit of sugar in your bowl with the batshit genius of Madame Simone. (So you better bring those five bottles of champagne, OK? We’re going to need it.)
