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.)
