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.)

Congrats to Sheroic GIF artists Emilio Gomariz, Rollin Leonard, Sally McKay, Lorna Mills & Yoshi Sodeoka on their involvement in the Born in 1987: The Animated GIF exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery.
The exhibit — which explores the “overlooked image format” — launches the Gallery’s new digital programme. The works will screen on The Wall, a new 2.7 x 3m Sharp video wall that is situated on the Gallery’s ground floor and visible to everyone visiting the building as well as those passing by on the street.
Above is a screen shot of The Guardian's video on the gallery’s re-opening, which features for a few frames Yoshi Sodeoka’s "Infinite Parton", a GIF work that was initially commissioned for Sheroes #9: Dolly Parton's The Light Crust Dough Boys & Girls group GIF show that was curated by Lorna Mills.
