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":
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.
— 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 Virtual Season contact us.)

I like the relationship to fandom that you talk about, but I think one thing that is pretty interesting about Sheroes is that often you have artists with very little relationship with a celebrity’s image or work contributing. It’s sort of posing as the actions of fans, but really it’s something else, or maybe it’s positioned as fandom.
