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.)

Sheroes is now on UStream

Video streaming by Ustream

Consider this a love letter to our motley crew of international artists.

Even though Sheroes is very much an IRL art party series in Toronto, we work hard to bring that energy to the online. For the longest while, We kept wishin’ and hopin’ that a private jet could scoop up the artists that we have involved that live in Japan and Mexico and Greece and Ireland, but until we get the budget for that, there’s now our new UStream channel.

Click on over to our channel to watch very shaky, iPhone segments that we shot live from our night (We’ll likely be continuing this for our last events: Sheroes #12: Nina Simone & our massive arts & music festival, Virtual Season.)
