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.)

Ask A Sheroes Stan: Paul Petro Finally Answers Super Important Grace Jones Q’s

Here’s a piece of vinyl I picked up the year it came out (1978) and it’s still spinning strong!”

Two months ago, we were proud to launch our Sheroes Stan residency, a program that connects aca-fan knowledge and wisdom to the vastly growing motley crew of international and local artists that are regularly involved with Sheroes each month.

For Sheroes #10: Grace Jones, we were so glad to invite local art dealer (and rare Grace Jones vinyl collector) Paul Petro.

Paul runs in Toronto Paul Petro Contemporary Art, a local gallery that has shown super awesome Canadian artists like Robert Flack, Sheroes spirit animal Will Munro, Andrew Harwood & GB Jones. We got the first hint of his Sheroic fannishness when he posted on our Facebook group Dolly’s pink vinyl. (And then came the Grace blue vinyl, and we just knew it was meant to be.)

Click below for the full interview, in which Petro illuminates on the story behind that blue vinyl, talks about that time Grace Jones performed out of her head at the AGO & schools us on the importance of our headliner, Lillian Allen. (And if you’re in Toronto tonight, you can meet Paul at Sheroes #10 and ask him any Q’s we didn’t get answered!)
