Sheroes

About
Sheroes was a monthly limited-run art party series that brought together on and offline works that playfully and performatively explore the iconography and cultures of fandom surrounding the "League of Legendary Ladies": Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Madonna, Yoko Ono, Erykah Badu, Etta James, Marianne Faithfull, Dolly Parton, Grace Jones, Dusty Springfield & Nina Simone.


Sheroes is presented by salonnière reeraw (Rea McNamara). Based in Toronto, the series curates specially commissioned performances, sounds, installations & visuals.


All Sheroes events are brainstormed and archived online at fuckyeahsheroes.tumblr.com, uniting digital communities with real-time audiences in an ongoing exploration into fan culture and collaborative content creation.


Virtual Season — our culminating presentation of new and past Sheroes on/offline works & performances — is currently gearing into its first international reunion tour. We will be announcing soon tour dates. (If you would like to book a Sheroes event, please contact us.)

And I got a little lucky on Saturday too by winning the draw at Sweet Daddy Siki’s karaoke at The Duke in Toronto. It sure wasn’t about skill, the way I sang a Dolly Parton song (badly - will I ever learn?). It was pure luck, with maybe a little instant karma thrown in for tipping well.

— Glad to announce that Trixie & Beever of bbj handmade pop accessories will be involved with Sheroes #9: Dolly Parton. Expect even MOAR Titz & Glitz, folks!
